OSWEGO – Volunteers from St. Luke Health Services gathered in the Riverview Room at St. Luke for a luncheon in their honor. “We are grateful for all that our many volunteers do on behalf of our residents,” said Volunteer Coordinator Deb Robillard. “Our annual volunteer recognition luncheon is just one small way St. Luke as an organization says thank you for their invaluable contributions all year long.” The theme for the event, “A Volunteer For All Seasons” recognized the many services volunteers offer residents throughout the year.

Robillard noted, “St. Luke is blessed to count more than one hundred volunteers of all ages and many community groups who bring their unique talents and skill together to enhance the quality of life that our residents experience. Our volunteers are always ready to jump in to help in any way they can, making all of the activities and outings St. Luke offers even more fun. But, most importantly, they become treasured friends and families to our residents.”
“St. Luke volunteers contributed literally thousands of hours of their time and helped with more than one thousand programs and activities last year,” added Robillard. “Volunteers can give of their time as often as they like and many people who inquire are surprised at the number of opportunities and activities we have available.”
