Rural Health names Jim Magill as 2014 Volunteer of the Year

Grand County Rural Health Network celebrated its volunteers Tuesday, Nov. 18, at The Midtown Café in Granby. Volunteers are a vital part of the organization and are involved in fundraising, daily operations, and transportation of clients.

Jim Magill was named 2014 Volunteer of the year. Jim has been on the board since 2013 and is also a volunteer driver. Jim has driven over 1,900 miles this year, often accompanied by his wife Beth. This is critical to Grand County residents, who for health and income reasons, have no transportation in and out of the county for their medical appointments. Jim’s graciousness and flexibility make this program viable. We are beyond grateful for his service. We could not continue to serve the community without people like Jim, and our more than 65 volunteers.

Grand County Rural Health Network is always looking for medical transportation volunteers. This service is severely lacking in the community and is imperative for the health of county residents who lack this resource. One trip a year makes a difference in someone’s life. Please call us at 970-725-3477 for more information and other volunteer opportunities.
