Each quarter an employee is honored with the humanitarian award, a category of Heart and Soul recognizing acts of kindness and charity, contributing to enhancing and promoting the welfare of humanity in the community, nation or world.
Tim Hivley was nominated by an entire department for an act of kindness and humanity.
Tim works in the construction department as a mechanic. During his lunch break, he spends his time helping an elderly lady who lives behind Memorial Hospital spend time outside of her house. She comes out of her house to talk to him, then he helps her put her knee brace on and sits and talks with her until he has to go. Then he helps her get back to her house. Several people have heard him offer his help to her whenever she needs it.
