Peach Ladies and Men Volunteer at New Peach County Hospital | News
When you come into the new hospital in Peach County, you may see a woman and sometimes a man greet you. And they are probably wearing peach.
The Medical Center of Peach County has 45 women and 3 men as volunteers. Volunteers at other hospitals usually where pink, but MCPC they wear peach.
Brenda Alden, Medical Center of Peach County Auxiliary President: "This is Peach County and the peach is queen here it just kind of evolved you know auxiliary members have been known for years as pink ladies we can't be pink ladies we have to be peach ladies," said Brenda Alden, President of Peach Lady Auxiliary.
The Peach ladies and men's job is to help you find your way around the hospital, greet you, and let staff know when you arrive for your appointments.
Organizers say they expected maybe two dozen volunteers for the hospital. They've had double that number show-up.
"Because you get to see your neighbors you get to see a beautiful facility. You know our hospital struggled for many years and so just to see something up and running that everybody can be proud," said Para Vinson, Vice President of Peach Lady Auxiliary.
Ellen Terrell, Director of Community Engagement, says most of the volunteers started in mid-May before the hospital even opened. Peach Ladies and men are required to volunteer 20 hours every three months.
