Anita Roberts, St. Luke's Baptist Hospital
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.
