Rochelle Delores Smith: 1st District Winner, 2012 Peggy A. Montes Unsung Heroine of Cook County Award


Rochelle Smith gives generously of her time, skills, and knowledge.  Last year, Rochelle volunteered over 200 hours at Sinai Health System.

During her time at Sinai Health System, she served as a Patient Transporter for Mount Sinai Hospital Transportation Department assisting patients and caregivers, and as a Counselor with Camp Schwab, helping to provide sports and recreational instruction for children with physical disabilities.  Rochelle also collects and sorts donations for the Annual Toy Drive for kids in need and assists with Sinai Kids Club Events, the Annual Holiday Drive, and the Sinai Clothing Closet.

Rochelle says, “I am aware that everyone isn’t as fortunate as I am, and volunteering makes me feel as if I am giving back to people who don’t have what I have.”
