At Banner Estrella, we know how valuable volunteers are to the health of our facility, and to the help of our patients, staff and physicians but don't take our word for it. Read what our volunteers say:
“As a volunteer, I am treated like a valued addition to the staff and made to feel that my work is always appreciated. There is no better feeling than knowing you have made a positive difference in someone’s day. Believe me, you can’t do anything else with your time that will give you more of a sense of accomplishment.”
— Linda, Women and Infants Services volunteer
“I have been so blessed in my life and now I have more time to give back. There are so many special and rewarding moments that enrich my experience volunteering at Banner Estrella.”
— Eileen, first Banner Estrella volunteer
“I volunteer because of the feeling of well-being that I get when
I am able to provide a patient or staff member a few minutes
of total relaxation from stresses of a hospitalization
or a trying day at work through Reiki Therapy.”
— Don, Reiki Therapist volunteer
“My motivation came from seeing my husband get such great care at Banner Estrella. I feel that I am making a difference working at the Gift Shop. I work there as if it is my own.”
— Tanya, Gift Shop volunteer
“The treatment and care I received at Banner Estrella went above and beyond the call of duty. I was made to feel as if I were the most important person on the floor. How could I not give back?
To put a smile on someone’s face, to calm a confused patient,
to offer a tissue to a scared child, to get a wheelchair
for someone on crutches... Thank you for the privilege!”
— Joyce, Information Desk volunteer
