It’s National Volunteer Week, a time to recognize, celebrate and thank the volunteers who contribute to our Hospital and Health Sciences Foundation.
Michelle Paziuk is one of the Gift Shop Sales Assistant Volunteers in Seasons Gift Shop at Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre (TBRHSC).
When Michelle retired a few years ago she was looking for a way to be connected with people and use her computer and organization skills while giving back to the community. Volunteering at Season’s Gift Shop seemed like a perfect fit.
If you stop by Seasons Gift Shop on Friday mornings, you will surely receive a friendly and welcoming greeting from Michelle. A volunteer at TBRHSC since January 2019, Michelle is often busy with the lottery and Nevada ticket sales, putting out and organizing new merchandise and helping customers as needed. Her polite and friendly customer service focus makes her an excellent member of our volunteer team. We couldn’t be more thankful that she chooses to spend her time volunteering at TBRHSC.
During National Volunteer Week, we celebrate the contributions of volunteers like Michelle who take time out of their own schedule to share their skills and talents to give back to the Hospital. We are so lucky to have Michelle in our facility to help improve the patient and family experience by creating a warm and welcoming environment for all.
When she isn’t volunteering her time at Seasons Gift Shop, Michelle – an avid reader – can be found with a good book or playing with her puppy.
