A Wonderful Volunteer


Maria has been a volunteer at St. Joseph’s Hospital since 1948 – that’s 69 years of volunteer Service! 

She is involved in St. Joseph’s Care Group Auxiliary and has been in many Executive Positions including President over the years.  She has assisted with fund raising efforts such as by selling Nevada tickets, working in the Gift Shop, bake sales, bingos, spaghetti dinners and so much more.  Maria has helped to organize the yearly Auxiliary Bazaar making sure everything gets done on the To Do List.

She is also a hospice volunteer assisting residents and their families at HRM at end of life, she is a friendly visitor, visiting specific residents on a regular basis, and she assists residents yearly in completing client satisfaction surveys - she is only a phone call away when we need her help.

For all her hard work and dedication, she was awarded the Senior Achievement Award in 2013!!

We are proud and extremely lucky to have such amazing volunteers within our organization at St. Joseph’s Care Group. 

Thank you so much Maria for all that you have done and continue to do.
