She is always willing to help and goes above and beyond what is expected. We are grateful that she has chosen to be part of the TGMC Volunteer Auxiliary,” Faucheaux continued.

Kelpsch loves helping people and enjoys the interaction with fellow volunteers, patients and visitors as evidenced by the upbeat attitude she brings to the hospital with her when she is here. She volunteers to assist with outside blood drives and various fundraising activities. Kelpsch also gives her time to her church and other community organizations.

“I want to congratulate Ms. Anita Kelpsch on her recognition as Volunteer of the Year. Our volunteers are truly dedicated to helping TGMC’s staff member’s, patients and their families.
