Lending a Helping Hand at St. Luke’s Hospital

Lending a Helping Hand at St. Luke’s Hospital“It is a pleasure to have Sam H. as part of the Aurora St. Luke’s team!” Denise Mosby, employee of St. Luke’s Central Service Department, and fellow coworkers all stated in a letter their great appreciation for the work that Sam provides there.

Sam started his services with Goodwill’s Community Access Program in April 2014 and after completing the Discovery process, began volunteering for St. Luke’s Central Service Department in June 2014. Sam has been a hard-working volunteer for the past year and he loves every second of it!   

Sam gathers supplies, checks the labels, and then delivers the items to four different building areas.   Sam focuses on quality customer service when delivering supplies.   

Ann H. also is a valued team member of St. Luke’s. She began her journey in Community Access in September 2014 and after completing the Discovery process, began her volunteering experience at St. Luke's in December 2014.  Ann is a cafeteria assistant where she helps with sanitizing tables, stocking shelves, and prepping food (cottage cheese cups, mandarin cups and candy cups). "I like working hard at Central Supply and in the cafeteria at St. Luke's,” Ann said.

Ann also volunteers one day a week in Central Service at St. Luke’s. She is responsible for delivering medical supplies all throughout the hospital, navigating through four different building areas!  This is not an easy task.  Ann has been working on her navigational, elevator, and customer service skills while working for Central Service.  Ann always arrives to volunteer ready to work, with a big smile on her face!
