As a volunteer at Evans Army Hospital, Alicia has gained skills and done things that even she hadn’t expected. “My biggest highlight this summer was to work in the Mountain Post Birthing Center,” Rendon said. “I got to witness the birth of a baby boy.” Her other duties included helping out at the reception desk, making patient charts, answering phones, running labs and setting up baby sensors. She also helped the nurses by picking up patient trays, setting up bassinets and stocking supplies.

According to Alicia, it is all about giving a “helping hand.” “It’s the little things that make a big difference even if you volunteer one day,” Rendon said.
