There are many students at Orcutt Academy who have gone above and beyond when it comes to giving back to our community through community service. One of these students recognized is senior Shania Bracamonte. Shania has an amazing total of 300 hours of volunteer time in the hospital. I decided to sit down with her to figure out what she does to give back, and how others can do the same.
Shania volunteered at the Marian Medical Center and Pals Key Club since her freshman year. She specifically worked at the front desk, and made kits for newly born babies.
“When I work at the front desk,” she shares, “I sign in each visitor and what room they’re going to and make sure to give them visitor passes.” When she is working in the back, she says she is helping restock all the linen cabinets to make sure all the rooms have everything they need.
“In the nursery, I make up packages for all the moms to take home with some goodies for their newborns.” Finally, when a mom is ready to go home, she will get a wheelchair and discharge them downstairs, and take them to their car to make sure they get there safely.
Shania says she has really enjoyed volunteering for the hospital and hopes others will do the same. If you are in need of more community service to graduate (the minimum is forty hours), you can sign up to volunteer at the Marian Medical Center and invest both in your future and the community.
