Valley Baptist Health System Volunteers Bring Big Smiles

Jul 13, 2018
HARLINGEN – What can one smile really do?  At Valley Baptist Health System, each smile brings thousands more smiles in return.  The dedicated team of volunteers in Harlingen and Brownsville makes it their mission to see how many smiles they can bring to patients, families and staff through their “Bring a Smile” program.

Volunteer Services makes it their goal each year to select a theme or program their team of
valley baptist volunteers dedicated volunteers wants to see come to fruition and then makes it happen.   In addition to the theme, they put together related decorations to help their vision transpire.  

“This year it was important to us to change people’s day with something as simple as a smile,” said Katie McCarty, Director of Volunteer Services for Valley Baptist Health System.  “Each volunteer was given a supply bag of “Smile” goodies to include, pencils, notepads, buttons and greeting cards, with the goal in mind to always share a smile with someone.”  

The program was kicked-off at this year’s annual spring appreciation banquet and has been a huge success.  A jar of smile buttons sits at the front check-in area so volunteers can put one on and take one to pass along, when preparing for their day of patient rounding.  

“It’s amazing the response we have seen when our volunteers arrive with their “Smiles” to brighten someone’s day,” said McCarty.  “That one smile can have such a positive impact on our patient’s experience.  It really is incredible.”

Volunteer Week is celebrated every year in April and is a special time to recognize and thank the team of volunteers who are committed to making a difference in the lives of others.

“As we celebrate Volunteer Week this week, we take the time to thank our hundreds of volunteers who are committed to making an impact and committed to spreading thousands of smiles here at VBHS,” said McCarty.
