Children’s Mercy Kansas City – Volunteer Appreciation Month

As Children’s Mercy Kansas City celebrates Volunteer Appreciation Month in April, they would like to highlight some of the many volunteers who help the hospital run smoothly. With more than 700 people volunteering their time and talents, including guiding families through the hospital, comforting babies in the NICU, critical behind-the-scenes processing of donations of clothes and toys, and much more, Children’s Mercy is able to provide care, hope, and healing to all of their patients.

Becky DeNight, Casey Cain, and Carol Cain serve at the Moon Desk and greet patients and families.
