Riverside Walter Reed Hospital recently named Cindy Jenkins its volunteer coordinator, responsible for leading the recruitment, placement and retention of volunteers at the community hospital. Jenkins, a Gloucester native, also serves as the hospital’s gift shop coordinator.
Prior to joining Riverside in 2018, Jenkins spent 24 years at Walmart, most recently as a store manager. She started with Riverside in a part-time position working as a protection officer before assuming her current role as volunteer coordinator.
Jenkins and her family have strong ties to the local area and to Walter Reed Hospital. Jenkins’s mother started working for the hospital after the family moved to the area in 1979, and Jenkins herself would graduate from Gloucester High School in 1990. Jenkins’ father worked at Naval Weapons Station Yorktown.
She has fond memories of visiting her mother at work and seeing firsthand the sense of camaraderie and respect shared among the staff.
