Celebrating National Volunteer Week


LACONIA, NH -- April 6 through 12 marks National Volunteer Week, and LRGHealthcare is taking part in the festivities by acknowledging the dedication and hard work of the many volunteers within the organization.
National Volunteer Week began in 1974 when President Richard Nixon signed an executive order establishing the week as an annual celebration of volunteering. Since then, every U.S. President has signed a proclamation promoting National Volunteer Week.
“Volunteers are the heart and soul of both Lakes Region General Hospital and Franklin Regional Hospital. These individuals are the unsung heroes who provide heart-warming care and comfort to patients, families and staff,” explained Director of Public Relations and Volunteer Services Sandy Marshall.
There are a wide range of volunteer roles at LRGHealthcare, including, but not limited to: escorting patients through the hospital, running the gift shop, delivering books and magazines, and assisting with administrative tasks. The opportunities are endless and LRGHealthcare is happy to work with individuals to find or create the right position.
To learn more about Volunteer Services at either Lakes Regional General Hospital or Franklin Regional Hospital, please contact Darcy Peary, Volunteer Coordinator  at 524.3211, ext. 6720 or email
