June Volunteer of the Month
Carol Ann Lombardi
More than 1,100 hours of service
Congratulations to Carol Ann Lombardi on her selection as the June Volunteer of the Month. Carol Ann is a volunteer on C4 and A2 NICUs and has dedicated an impressive 1,110 hours of service. What makes her experience at Nationwide Children’s special is her willingness to train other volunteers after their orientation. Because the NICUs are growing and their volunteer needs are increasing, Carol Ann’s help with volunteer training has kept the NICU volunteer program up and running. She is an excellent role model for other volunteers and continues to provide great feedback for staff. Everyone in Family and Volunteer Services, C4 and A2 NICUs thank her for her continued dedication and support of the families, patients, and staff at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
