PeaceHealth St. John Volunteer Parade (Photo) - 06/30/20

On Thursday, July 2 at 12:30 PM, PeaceHealth St. John volunteers furloughed since early March due to COVID-19 safety precautions will return to the hospital to take part in a socially distanced parade around the hospital. The volunteers will drive through the PeaceHealth St. John campus waving from their vehicles to say "hello, we miss you" to the PeaceHealth St. John staff.

"We have 270 volunteers on our team, and we have really missed having them here at PeaceHealth St. John for the past four months," said Crystal Rhodes, Volunteer Coordinator at PeaceHealth St. John. "They not only provide tremendous help to us in accomplishing important day-to-day functions, but they also bring a bright, positive energy that never fails to lift our spirits. It will be wonderful to see them again, even if it is at an appropriate social distance. I know the volunteers are looking forward to the day when they can return to their work serving our patients."

PeaceHealth St. John anticipates approximately 30 volunteers will participate in the parade, including a number of teen volunteers who also recently graduated from local high schools and will wear their caps and gowns. Hospital employees will gather along the parade route holding signs with expressions of appreciation for the volunteers.

The parade will begin at 12:30 PM in front of the PeaceHealth St. John Emergency Department, move west past the Cancer Center, then north to Delaware Street before finishing in the parking circle in front of the hospital. The public is welcome to attend.
