Student volunteers at Maimonides Medical Center were honored and recognized for their dedication and commitment to the community.
The healing center’s annual salute celebrated the importance of the 128 student volunteers from Brooklyn schools, including New Utrecht High School, James Madison High School, and Bishop Kearney High School.
The do-gooders amassed an impressive 14,000 volunteer hours assisting staff with clerical tasks, foreign language interpretation, support for patients, and recreational activities, benefitting the hospital, said its boss.
“The valuable contributions made by our student volunteers have had an enormous impact on the Maimonides community,” said Ken Gibbs, Maimonides president and chief executive officer.
