Volunteers touted during special week

Volunteer Voice - Fall 2012

Although the contributions of MD Anderson volunteers are appreciated every day of the year, National Volunteer Week is a time to thank all volunteers for the collective impact they have on patients and the cancer center as a whole.

National Volunteer Week is a time set aside in our country to honor all volunteers engaged in community efforts. In addition to MD Anderson, the Texas Medical Center also recognizes National Volunteer Week by honoring all TMC volunteer programs and holding a celebration in early summer.

In April, Volunteer Services showed its appreciation for the dedication and skills that volunteers bring to their positions with two celebrations.

Recognizing the extraordinary volunteer service contributed by our 1,100 volunteers, daytime volunteers were honored at a luncheon on April 19 in the Duncan Family Institute for Cancer Prevention and Risk Assessment Ballroom, while the evening and weekend volunteers were thanked at an evening reception on April 12 at The Junior League of Houston Inc.
