Ohio’s Community Mercy Hospice is the lucky beneficiary of time and talent contributed by two volunteers recently honored for their community contributions.
Maxine Shroyer was awarded the 2018 Outstanding Senior Citizen Award for Clark County from the Area Agency on Aging and Phyllis Terry was awarded the 2018 Outstanding Senior Service award from United Senior Services. Both devote part of their volunteer hours to serve our hospice mission.
Maxine, pictured left, serves as a friendly visitor, participates in caregiver relief, provides crafts, sewing and baking projects and provides transportation. She has served as several years as the co-leader of The Charity Guild, crafting neck pillows for patients.
Phyllis, pictured right, currently serves providing caregiver relief and as a friendly visitor for patients and has previously served the hospice mission as a bereavement outreach caller, co-leader of grief groups and as an angel by the bedside, sitting with those who are dying.
The contributions these two outstanding volunteers make to our hospice mission – and to a myriad of other community organizations – is a testament to their giving hearts and servant’s souls. We congratulate them on well-deserved recognition.
