On April 10, JF&CS CHAI Works was recognized at the Newton-Wellesley Hospital (NWH) Volunteer Recognition Dinner for all of the hard work CHAI Works participants have done at the hospital over the past year. The CHAI Works program was awarded the Outstanding Group Volunteer Award, which hasn’t been given out since 2006. This year more than 21 CHAI Works volunteers have assisted NWH in putting together more than 8,000 maternity and postpartum packets as well as adult GI packets and various mailings for different departments throughout the hospital. In addition, there is a CHAI Works participant who volunteers in food service and another who restocks the flu booklets around the hospital and collects and recycles the hospital’s batteries each week.
The relationship between NWH and CHAI Works began in 2005 and has flourished to what it is today, with CHAI Works volunteer groups enthusiastically volunteering three days a week and taking ownership of the projects they complete. NWH greatly appreciates the CHAI Works participants’ work, stating “We simply could not provide this service without their presence and hard work!”
