Carson Valley Medical Center volunteers make donations

Staff reports

Volunteers at the Carson Valley Medical Center in Gardnerville gave a check for $200 to the American Cancer Society on Feb. 25.

Volunteers are members of the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program. They hold book fairs at the center in May and November, and the money they earn from the sale is banked until the time the volunteers decide which charity or organization they want the money to go to.

This year, it was decided to give $200 to cancer victims in the Valley. Susan Sanford of the American Cancer Society accepted a check from Norma Smith.

On the same day, the RSVP volunteers who operate the Carson Valley Medical Center Gift Cart donated $300 to the Barton Memorial Hospital Foundation. A check was handed over to foundation trustee Francie Alling.

The gift cart has been in operation for eight months and sells a variety of gifts and See’s Candies. Profits are earmarked for community charities.

At Christmas 1997, the cart volunteers donated $300 to the Family Support Council.

The Barton Memorial Hospital Foundation has raised more than $1 million to further the hospital’s commitment to the health and wellness of the communities it serves with health care programs, services, community education and state-of-the-art technology.

The Carson Valley Medical Center needs volunteers to operate the gift cart and help with various hospital-based departments such as occupational medicine, physical therapy, X-ray, laboratory, emergency department and home health, among others.
