Volunteering makes a difference

When my husband was in the hospital I noticed how some patients had no one visiting them and I thought to myself, “I should do something for these people”. Even just five minutes of my time with them – I’m so happy that I cheer them up. Volunteering with SMRC makes a difference. You let them know that someone cares for them. Your time is precious to them.
