Sheridan Memorial Hospital treated volunteers to breakfast Thursday morning as a way of saying thank you for the work they do to help keep the hospital running.

The breakfast is an annual event, and Jasmine Slater, who's the hospital's volunteer services coordinator, said the event is held in April to coincide with observance of April as National Volunteer Appreciation Month.

Slater said about 120 people currently do volunteer work at the hospital, and she said that number includes not only those who work in different departments at the hospital but the hospice volunteers as well as those who donate their time to serve on the hospital board of trustees and the hospital foundation board.

She said last year, hospital volunteers worked over 6,000 hours total, a number that doesn't include hospice volunteers or board members.

She said those 6,000 hours range from those who are only able to work four to eight hours once a month to those who put in 500 hours during the year.
