REDLANDS, Calif. (December 12, 2016) -- Redlands Community Hospital honored
their volunteers at its annual Auxiliary Holiday Brunch and Installation
on Wednesday, December 7, at the Redlands Community Hospital Stan and
Ellen Weisser Education Pavilion.
Minnie Robinson, an 18-year Auxiliary Volunteer, was chosen to receive
the Mary Kimberly-Shirk Volunteer Award of Excellence, which is presented
each year to an outstanding volunteer who demonstrates leadership, enthusiasm,
loyalty, energy and compassion for patients and their families. In her
nearly two decades of service, Robinson has volunteered more than 10,000
hours and has held leadership roles on the Auxiliary Board as the Service
Awards Chair, Hours Awards Chair, as well as the Chair of Volunteer Services.
She has supported a number of the hospital’s special events as well
as community health fairs. Robinson can be regularly found in the gift
shop, creating a warm and welcoming experience for visitors purchasing
gifts for patients or taking a break from a stressful moment.
“We celebrate our volunteers for their continued time, energy, skills
and talents they generously give, helping us make Redlands Community Hospital
better and our community stronger,” said Jim Holmes, president and
CEO of Redlands Community Hospital. “It is our volunteers who exemplify
the true spirit of giving by bringing their passion and determination
each day to make a difference at our hospital.”

a check for $65,000.; monies having been raised from proceeds from the
Auxiliary Gift Shop, book fairs, quilt ticket sales and other fundraising
activies. The Auxiliary Quilters unveiled the 2016 patch, which will be
