Patients and employees can count on seeing Raynia Kinniston shuffling through the hallways of Sacramento's Mercy General Hospital.

Raynia has helped people in several different departments at Mercy, and she hopes her legacy lives on for many years.

"We could certainly use more volunteers, if anyone has the time, I would certainly recommend it," said Raynia.

Raynia says by volunteering, she benefits more than the people she serves.

The hospital estimates Raynia has given about 45,000 hours.
