Recently, the Volunteer Auxiliary at Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital got together for a good cause. When the volunteers attended an Ice Cream Social held in their honor by the hospital, they each brought school supplies to donate for the upcoming school year. Included were backpacks, notebooks, binders, paper, markers, pencils, and glue, just to name a few.
These supplies will be donated to the Cypress Assistance Ministries, who will provide the items to schoolchildren in need in the community.
Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital is very fortunate to have a team of dedicated volunteers to help meet the needs of the community. The volunteer program has nearly 120 men and women who work in many different areas of the hospital, including the emergency room, gift shop, information desk, and nursing units. Volunteers have the opportunity to learn new skills or strengthen old ones, explore a career in health care, extend their social network, and do their part to help others in the community.
