Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital Volunteer Profile
Bonnie Roth has been a Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital Auxiliary
Volunteer for over 15 years. We sat down to chat with Bonnie to find out what keeps
her coming back and why more members of the Bitterroot Valley should volunteer
with the Marcus Daly Pink Ladies.
Name: Bonnie Roth
Years Volunteering: 15
Why did you start volunteering at Marcus Daly?
When I retired from teaching 18 years ago, I knew I couldn’t just
sit around at home all day, I needed to do something, so I decided to
join the Pink Ladies (Hospital Auxiliary).
MDMH: What do you love about being a Hospital Auxiliary volunteer?
The atmosphere, the people I work with. I’ve always been interested
in health care and hospitals, when I was younger I thought I would become
a nurse someday, but I ended up teaching instead.
What keeps you coming back as a volunteer year after year?
I just really love doing it!
Why would you encourage other members of the Bitterroot Valley community
to join the Pink Ladies?
Once people find out just what we do for the hospital they become more
interested in being involved. Most don’t realize how much equipment
we purchase for the hospital or the amount of volunteer hours we contribute,
just in the last year we’ve accumulated over 8,000 hours.
Plus there’s the social side of being an Auxiliary volunteer too.
I just really enjoy volunteering for Marcus Daly Memorial Hospital!
