Cabell Huntington Hospital's Auxiliary and Volunteer Services received multiple awards from the annual Auxiliary of the West Virginia Hospital Association meeting in September at The Greenbrier Resort.

Charlotte Mohr, a Cabell Huntington Hospital of more than 12 years, was awarded the 2013 Volunteer of the Year for West Virginia and the Southwestern District. Mohr has served Cabell Huntington Hospital's staff and visitors in a variety of ways and was recognized in 2013 as Cabell Huntington Hospital's Volunteer of the Year.

"Charlotte has a unique leadership style that combines a savvy flair for the arts with a very personal, face-to-face, listening-to-the-people focus that has enabled her to connect with many people in a very short time – and with very positive results," Barry Tourigny, vice president of human resources and organizational development at CHH, said in a news release.

CHH's Auxiliary project, "Animals for Smiles," bested all other hospital auxiliary projects in West Virginia in the non-fundraising service project category by receiving honors for hospitals with more than 300 beds and as the state's overall winner.

Volunteers with the project sew, stuff and deliver colorful animal toys to children to help them relax while receiving care or medical tests at CHH, the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Hoops Family Children's Hospital.

More than 3,300 handmade stuffed animals have been delivered to children so far through the program.

"I was thrilled and excited that the ‘Animals for Smiles' won the project of the year award, and I am humbled to be named volunteer of the year," Mohr said. "All of us who have worked on ‘Animals for Smiles' know what it has meant to the staff at Cabell Huntington Hospital, the parents and most importantly, the children."
