Mariah Pettway - Volunteer Work Success!


Mariah Pettway was chosen to do an interview about her volunteer work with Stamford Hospital and has been featured on their website!

Thank you for all the work you do for Stamford Health! Tell us about your volunteer work.
I have been volunteering at Stamford Hospital for seven years now. At first, I began delivering the newspapers. Now, I put together and distribute our Patient Handbook folders, full of important information for our patients. I deliver the folders to every floor of the tower. It’s a lot of walking!

What do you typically do on your shifts?
I volunteer on Monday & Wednesday for an hour and a half each day. I stuff the folders, make sure everything is correct, and deliver them to our tower floors. I interact with patients, doctors – everyone knows me!

Why did you become a volunteer?

I found out about volunteering at the hospital through Always Reaching for Independence (ARI) of Connecticut. It sounded like it would be fun! I like interacting with everyone and knowing that I have a positive impact on everyone’s day.

Do you have any advice for others looking to get involved?
It’s fun! I love volunteering at the hospital – I would recommend anyone give it a try.
