Since the end of May, Door County Medical Center Auxiliary members have volunteered more than 1,000 hours in the hospital as door monitors: those who ask people entering the hospital whether they have any COVID-19 symptoms, and ask them to sanitize to their hands and wear a free mask if they aren’t already. Volunteers also answer questions, give directions and disinfect wheelchairs and waiting-area furniture.
Robin Hamm-Jackson, the auxiliary’s volunteer coordinator, ensures that the schedules are filled each day and greatly appreciates the volunteers’ generosity.
“They have been amazing in their response to meeting the needs of the medical center, protecting our patients, visitors and staff,” she said.
The auxiliary is always seeking new, energetic, community-minded members to work in the hospital and at the two annual signature fundraising events: the House and Garden Walk and the Angel Ball. To find out how you could help, contact Hamm-Jackson at 920.746.1071, ext. 3, or visit dcmedical.org.
