Beth Hoeffgen Receives Volunteer-of-the-Year Award
Hospice of North Central Ohio (HNCO) has presented the 8th annual Sandra J. Rule Dauch Volunteer-of-the-Year Award to Beth Hoeffgen. Danielle England, HNCO Volunteer Coordinator stated, “Beth has been involved with our organization for over 8 years. She has dedicated this time to serving with a true spirit of volunteerism by going above and beyond in every task or project. Volunteering countless hours during this time, the impact made to our mission is indelible.”
Established in 2016 through a grant from The Richard E. & Sandra J. Dauch Foundation, Charlevoix, Michigan, the award is presented annually in honor of National Hospice & Palliative Care month to a HNCO volunteer who exhibits extraordinary commitment, impact, personal growth, and inspiration to others. Nominations are submitted by supervisors and peers and reviewed by a selection committee. HNCO regularly engages approximately 200 volunteers who provide and/or assist with patient care programs, administrative duties, special events, military pinning ceremonies, Camp Hope children’s bereavement camp and What Goes ‘Round Thrift Shoppe operations.
Ralph Tomassi, HNCO Chief Development Officer/Senior Administrator added, “We are grateful for this special endowment fund grant which has allowed us bring recognition to those who do so much for so little in support of our special mission.”
