Most Likely to Make You Smile

VOLUNTEER

MOST LIKELY TO MAKE YOU SMILE

Our KGH Foundation volunteers, truly in a class of their own, generously contribute over 50,000 hours annually, including efforts from the Board of Directors, committees, and event volunteers. In yearbook style, we’re delighted to showcase a selection from our social enterprises and JoeAnna’s House, just some of the volunteer class of 2024, who are most likely to turn your frown upside down. Allison (Allie) Young, KGH Foundation CEO emphasizes, “Without our first-class volunteers, our mission for world-class health care close to home wouldn’t be possible. To us, they are all… top of the class.”

CATHY LAPRISE, RUTLAND THRIFT

Cathy has been volunteering at Rutland Thrift for five years and is most likely to drown in bedding, something the store receives a lot of. Thankfully, she’s able to plow through the bounty of baby blankets and plethora of pillows with ease.

Fern, with a health career background, finds great satisfaction in serving hospital staff, patients, and families. She’s most likely to cover a shift in the Perking Lot or Royal Bistro – anywhere, any day, anytime.
