I have been volunteering at Stamford Hospital for seven years now. At first, I began delivering the newspapers. Now, I put together and distribute our Patient Handbook folders, full of important information for our patients. I deliver the folders to every floor of the tower. It’s a lot of walking!

What do you typically do on your shifts?

I volunteer on Monday & Wednesday for an hour and a half each day. I stuff the folders, make sure everything is correct, and deliver to our tower floors. I interact with patients, doctors – everyone knows me!

Why did you become a volunteer?

I found out about volunteering at the hospital through Always Reaching for Independence (ARI) of Connecticut. It sounded like it would be fun! I like interacting with everyone and knowing that I have a positive impact on everyone’s day.

Do you have any advice for others looking to get involved?

It’s fun! I love volunteering at the hospital – I would recommend anyone give it a try.
