Rutherford Regional Auxiliary recently attended the 30th annual conference of the North Carolina Hospital Volunteers (NCHV) held in Winston Salem. The theme of the conference was “Celebrating 30 Years.”
The Rutherford Regional Auxiliary was recognized as a Five Star Award recipient for the 15th year.
Each auxiliary earns points based on the valuable services and activities accomplished during the year, including recruitment, scholarship contributions, implementing new projects, hosting district wide meetings, conducting fund raising events, providing education and development for volunteers, providing community service opportunities such as the teen volunteer program and promoting National Volunteer Week.
The award was created to challenge volunteers to perform at a higher level in their volunteer roles. Bobbie Bridges, ICU waiting chair, served as the District 1 representative, which is comprised of 12 western North Carolina hospital volunteer groups. Bobbie provided great leadership and direction from the NCHV Board while attending their events and activities.
