“Betty has been a dedicated volunteer for many years,” says Service Excellence Coordinator Shannon Capozzola. “She is the go-to for Day Surgery and is always willing to take on a new project. We truly rely on her and she’s one of many faces we see everyday who make BWFH such a special place.”
For Podgurski volunteering is important. “I think it’s healthy for you to keep busy, I really believe that,” she says. “It keeps your mind going.”
It’s also a great way to give back. “I just like helping people,” says Podgurski.
In addition to being known for her commitment to BWFH Podgurski is known for keeping early hours when she volunteers. She’s usually up at 3 am and into work by 5 am. “I’m a morning person,” she says. “Even on the weekends, I’m up with the birds.”
