“There’s a lot of pleasure in giving back and the camaraderie of working together. ... The kindness from the volunteer makes the patient feel good and that in turn makes the volunteer have a very warm sense of community.” — Dreanne Foust, manager of volunteer services at Queen of the Valley Medical Center
