Friends of Coffey Health
System is a valuable part of the CHS family. These trusted volunteers
help our patients, staff, and community in countless ways.The flagship of the
auxiliary program is the Coffey County Hospital Gift Shop, which is
managed and staffed entirely by volunteers. Not only does the gift shop
provide a valuable service to the hospital’s patients, visitors, and
staff, but all proceeds are then given back to the community through
hospital improvements and local scholarships.
Reaching beyond our
walls, the Auxiliary also invests in the future by awarding
scholarships to local students. Our volunteers also help out in a
variety of capacities throughout the hospital, such as manning the
information desk, assisting with outpatient clinic admissions,
landscaping, and labeling items for the materials management department.
When information packets need to be compiled or extra help is
needed to host events, our volunteers are always eager to help out. Two
volunteers have even knitted more than 700 caps for the hospital’s
newborns. A loyal group of volunteers also reach out to brighten the
day for long-term care residents by playing games, reading aloud, or
simply visiting.We’re grateful to have several new volunteers join us, and look forward to more exciting new projects in the future.If
you have a few hours to spare and would enjoy a rewarding volunteer
opportunity, we'd love to have you join our team. Stop by the hospital
gift shop to fill out an application or do so online by clicking here.
