Feel Good Friday

Feel Good Friday is a weekly segment where EastIdahoNews.com partners with Wackerli Auto to thank people in our community with random acts of kindness.

This week is National Healthcare Volunteer Week and hundreds of east Idahoans donate their time to help others in the hospital.

We decided to thank some of the 120 volunteers who serve at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls.

Volunteers work at the front desk, answer phone calls, drive shuttles, deliver books and toys to patients, direct visitors, visit with patients and many other services.

The EIRMC volunteer program provides toys, books, games, puzzles, gas cards, car seats and other items to patients and their families staying at the hospital.

We purchased several items and gift cards to help with the volunteer program.

Watch the video above to see the surprise when we dropped the items off and, for more information about EIRMC Volunteer Services or to apply to be a volunteer, click here.
