After spending 29 years in the military and 19 years working for the Veterans Administration and the Department of Commerce, I was lost at home. I decided to transition from a career of service to a life of service. Volunteering is good for the heart and mind and it keeps you active. I have been a volunteer at St. Luke's Hospital for 4 years, working first at the gift shop and now at the information desk. People come to the hospital stressed or worried about their love ones or friends. I provide information and direction. It feel good helping others and it is the best thing I could have ever done. The Volunteer Department and the staff members of St. Luke's are committed not only to the patient(s) but also to their families.

I started volunteering at 16 years of age at Grace Lutheran Hospital. (Now known at St. Luke's Baptist). Life happens including marriage, children, and career....then you retire. After retiring and returning to San Antonio in 2002, I wanted to "re-enlist" to volunteer at St. Luke's Baptist Hospital and join the Hospital Auxiliary.

As a new volunteer in training, I discovered current volunteers had been in their positions for 25+ years. Now, I can understand why....the staff and fellow volunteers are professional, fun, friendly, and helpful. The employees make us feel very appreciated.

Over the years, I have served in the Surgical Reception Area, the Gift Shop, and currently, the ICU Reception Area. Being able to help patients, families, and the staff is a good feeling of accomplishment. I feel blessed to be a volunteer at St. Luke's Baptist Hospital.

Una Russell Volunteer

Una Russell

My name is Una Russell and I have been a volunteer at BMC in the SICU for almost 37 years. I believe that being of service to others is a privilege and an honor and I will continue to serve as long as I feel my efforts are accomplishing something and that I make a difference. Volunteering is not a one-way flow of assistance but mutual activities where you also learn from those you are trying to help. My volunteer activities in SICU have provided me a wonderful opportunity for personal development and self-fulfillment and when you like the people you work with, it is so much more rewarding.

I have been a Volunteer on 6A [the Surgery Waiting Room] for over 20 years. I volunteer because I love the people that I get to help when I am here. It is also a great service to our staff and the community. The people [that I help] keep me coming back every week.
