Whether it is making sandwiches, filing records, scheduling volunteers, transporting patients by wheelchair or by stretcher, answering telephones, lending a hand, selling gifts, or stuffing envelopes, your good deeds have an enormous impact on the care and service of our patients. You only know one way of giving—with both hands, with all of your heart, and without a second thought. WCA is in good hands because of you and today, we get to recognize you and say thank you!”
