Jef Friton retired to Sarasota but as soon as he settled into life after his career, he went back to work. Friton wanted to volunteer and found Doctors Hospital of Sarasota. Friton is the President of the Doctors Hospital Auxiliary and says, “Volunteering at Doctors Hospital is one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had. The patients and the hospital staff truly appreciate our efforts, and they let us know it.”
The hospital is holding a recruitment fair to share information about the benefits of volunteering and opportunities available. There are volunteer openings in almost every area of the hospital. Representatives from each department will be available to answer questions and explain the work they do. “During the winter season our patient count increases, so this is the ideal time to learn more. If you can spare as little as four hours a week, we need you. I feel confident you will find the experience rewarding,” added Friton.
The fair will be Monday, October 9 from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm, inside the McKenzie Café at the hospital, located at 5731 Bee Ridge Road, Sarasota FL 34233. The event is free of charge and light refreshments will be served. For more information about the auxiliary visit: www.dhsauxiliary.org
