Emanuel Volunteers Donate $10,000 to Turlock Gospel Mission

Oct 16, 2017

Turlock, CA— Emanuel Medical Center Volunteers donated $10,000 to the Turlock Gospel Mission today to help it complete its homeless shelter on Broadway Avenue.

 

The shelter, Turlock’s first year-round facility, will be able to house up to 65 homeless women, children and men when it opens by the end of this year.

 

The hospital volunteers’ donation was raised through sales at Emanuel’s gift shop. Volunteer Manager Carrie Lemon said the volunteers voted on the local charity to receive the donation, and the Turlock Gospel Mission was “near and dear to many of the volunteers’ hearts.”

 

The Emanuel Medical Center Volunteers have been supporting Emanuel, its patients and the community since 1961, raising and donating well over $1.5 million to hospital building funds, health efforts and scholarships. Additionally, volunteers have donated hundreds of thousands of hours of service to Emanuel and its patients.

 

“We have nearly 140 active volunteers between the hospital and Emanuel Cancer Center right now,” Lemon said. “And they’re all here to help our community.”

 

In addition to running the gift shop, the volunteers guide patients and visitors to rooms and appointments, assist families in the surgical waiting rooms and help nurses and staff on the patient-care floors.

 

“The patient-care opportunities are especially important for students considering a career in healthcare,” Lemon said. “They also receive school credit for their volunteer hours.”

 

The $10,000 donation was made at a regular volunteer meeting at Emanuel Medical Center.
