FARMINGTON — Franklin Memorial Hospital has approximately 150 volunteers who help out in numerous hospital departments and affiliated organizations, but currently more are needed in two key areas.

“Volunteers of all ages donate their time and talents day after day and with energy, enthusiasm, and commitment that is inspirational,” said Jodi Cordes, recruitment and volunteer services administrator, in a news release from the hospital. “They run the patient hospitality cart, staff the gift shop, stock supplies, deliver mail, park patient cars, and perform a myriad of other tasks that assist staff in providing care and services, and enhancing our patients’ experiences.”

According to Cordes, the areas most in need of volunteers presently are in the gift shop and staffing parking assistance. Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer should contact Cordes at 779-2635.

The organization has more than 600 full-time employees. However, it could not do the work it does without the assistance of its dedicated volunteers, who contribute about 20,000 hours annually.
