KENNEWICK, Wash.-- It's National Volunteer Month and Kennewick General Hospital is acknowledging their many volunteers.
The hospital has more than 130 volunteers that help out at the information desk, the gift shop, and other locations throughout the facility.
Hospital employees say they depend on the volunteers to help them maintain their day-to-day operations and every act of service is important.
"Our volunteers are really essential to what we do day in and day out and not only that, they represent the community we're serving. So it's really a cool symbiotic thing. They're giving to us and we're giving back," said Lisa Teske, Kennewick General Hospital spokesperson.
KGHvolunteers range in age from 16 to 98.
The volunteers will be recognized for their work at a luncheon this Friday.
