Volunteers Make The Difference

LifeBridge Health volunteers provide a bridge between health care providers and visitors, all the while building relationships in the community. Whether you’re a high school senior or a senior citizen, there are a variety of ways to volunteer.

At Sinai Hospital, David Lebson is one of its beloved volunteers. Last week, “Mr. David's" Sinai friends surprised him with a birthday party to ring in his 95th year. Mr. David, pictured above with Workforce Development Coordinator Anita Hammond, works three mornings a week in the Human Resources Department, with duties that include assembling books and materials for training courses, helping with large mailings, creating electronic documents from original documents, working on quality assurance of scanned documents, and much more.

“You don't make it to my age without have meaningful work to still do and a purpose to life,” Mr. David says. Sinai, he added, helps him achieve that.
