April’s Volunteer Appreciation Month Highlighted With Special Note from Guest Family to Volunteers and Our Viral Volunteer Videos
Volunteer Appreciation Month kicked off with the first day in April by the arrival of a thank you card for volunteers which included a special recognition of weekend volunteer Mike Amfahr with an enclosed photo of Mike standing next to the young patient who signed the card, a shout out to our cooking volunteers, and the all-volunteer band organized by hospital workers.
“To all you WONDERFUL people at the RMH,” the handwritten message inside the card begins. “THANK YOU from the bottom of our hears for providing such a wonderful place to stay while Tyler was in the hospital. You do an amazing job making a difficult time a little more positive, especially for the kids. We especially enjoyed the home-cooked meals and the concert by NACHO! 🙂
“And a very special thank you to Mike… you have no idea how special that was for Tyler to be your helper. He still talks about that day and he still has that dead lightbulb! Thank you for making our little boy so happy!”
“Hope to see you again next time when we come for Tyler’s BIG surgery. ♥”
The note is signed, “From Rob, Erin, & Tyler Griffin” and includes “Tyler” written in big blue marker at the very end.
Every day in April, we featured a different volunteer or group of volunteers. Click the image below to see a compilation of videos from and about our volunteers that were posted on social media throughout the month.
