HRMC Auxiliary names Volunteer of the Quarter


HURON — The Huron Regional Medical Center (HRMC) Auxiliary recently recognized Marilyn Hofer as its Volunteer of the Quarter, according to Bob Eickhoff, HRMC Auxiliary President.

Hofer has been an HRMC Auxiliary volunteer for more than eight years and serves at the Central Towers desk of the hospital, working approximately one half-day per week.

In addition to her contribution of time and energy as an HRMC Auxiliary volunteer, Hofer is actively involved in delivering Meals on Wheels, volunteering at her church and several times per week at Avantara Nursing Home, helping with bingo and Fancy Fingers. “I enjoy volunteering as it keeps me active and out in the community,” she said upon acceptance of the award. When she is not volunteering, Hofer enjoys crocheting, reading and spending time outdoors.

The HRMC Auxiliary Volunteer of the Quarter award is in place to recognize the important work of the volunteers at HRMC. Bob Eickhoff, president of the HRMC Auxiliary, thanked Marilyn for her presence and commitment, “It is our pleasure to recognize such dedication and consistency to making a positive impact on the lives of others.”

HRMC Auxiliary volunteers provide refreshments and assistance in hospital lounges, assist visitors at the information desks and deliver floral arrangements and newspapers to patients. The Auxiliary provides scholarships for students pursuing careers in health care and contributes to various projects at the hospital with funds raised through gift shop/candy counter sales and membership dues. The purpose of the Auxiliary is to promote and advance the welfare of HRMC by rendering service to patients and assisting with charitable projects.

The group is always looking for more volunteers to substitute or fill a four-hour weekly shift. For more information on HRMC’s Auxiliary or to volunteer, call Bonnie Sheridan at 605-354-1233 or visit
