The Genesis HealthCare System honored its hundreds of volunteers at a banquet Thursday night.
More than 500 people who volunteer were invited to the celebration at the North Terrace Church of Christ. 154 volunteers received awards for their hours or years of service to Genesis.
Special honorees were Mary Ellen Stutzman who has volunteered for 45 years, Bill James and Maggie Nussbaum who have 20 years volunteering at Genesis Hospice and Palliative Care, and eight clinical volunteers who have spent more than 10,000 hours helping the Health Care System.
