Craig Hospital's 200 volunteers make a difference in lives of patients and staff on a daily basis. For Carol Bock, those days have quickly added up to 33 years of service.
A Craig neighbor and co-owner of her family business, Glacier Homemade Ice Cream & Gelato, Carol makes time each Monday to volunteer at Craig, because she said, “It helps me start off the week the right way.”
It’s with that spirit and dedication that Carol has quietly become a part of the fabric of Craig Hospital. A volunteer in the Physical Therapy Department, she said she gains so much from watching patients become more independent. “I love watching people that enter broken become whole.”
Carol enjoys getting to know patients on a personal level, taking the time to learn about their lives. This June Carol Bock will receive the “Jim Richards’ Outstanding Volunteers of the Year,” award for her spirit of compassion and infectious personality.
“It’s important to acknowledge those who donate their time and give back to the community through volunteering,” said Jill Stelley Virden, Volunteer Director at Craig Hospital. “People like Carol make a difference in people’s lives through their service.”
“During National Volunteer Week, we say “thank you” to all those who volunteer and make a difference,” said Stelley Virden.
