A Greenville-based non-profit group that helps child cancer patients and their families at Vidant Medical Center has a new leader of its volunteers.
The Riley’s Army Board of Directors announced Friday that Emleigh Hughes is the group’s new Volunteer Coordinator.
Riley’s Army officials say Emleigh began serving with the group 7 years ago as a freshman in high school, and she has performed the duties of the Volunteer Coordinator for several past events.
In her new role with Riley’s Army, Emleigh will be responsible for coordinating respite care visits and meal delivery for families at Vidant Medical Center, assist Executive Director with event planning and volunteer coordination for events, working with local organizations to recruit and train volunteers, assist volunteers with completion of Vidant hospital training requirements, and engage with our volunteers.
Kirk Philpot, the founder of Riley’s Army, said, “We are thrilled to welcome Emleigh as the new Volunteer Coordinator. She has a heart for volunteering and will help support our families and volunteers with her new role.”
