Amboy Healthcare and Rehab Center literally rolled out the red carpet for their volunteers on Tuesday, April 16, when they presented them with the Yambo Awards.


AMBOY – The residents and staff at Amboy Healthcare and Rehab Center literally rolled out the red carpet for their volunteers on Tuesday, April 16, when they presented them with the Yambo Awards. The Yambo Awards are Amboy Healthcare’s own version of the Oscars.

Volunteers at Amboy Healthcare provide a much needed service to area residents, whether it is donating supplies, calling Bingo, holding a church service, entertaining, helping in the garden, visiting, comforting or just being an extra hand. National Volunteer Week (April 21-27) gives the residents and staff a chance to thank the volunteers for their various acts of kindness and service throughout the year. The evening included a light supper and entertainment by Central Standard Time.

Each volunteer received a Yambo Award and special gifts handcrafted by the residents, which included a therapeutic heat pack and a personalized coffee cup. They will also have their names included in Amboy Healthcare’s “Walk of Fame.”

Door Prizes were donated by area businesses. The evening filled with glitz, glam and gratitude, was enjoyed by around 50 volunteers.
