Hospice volunteers are wonderful people. We have a variety of opportunities, all of which, are critically important for our organization. Here is a snapshot of some of the areas we could use your support and time:
- At the Hospice Boutique – volunteers play a big role in operating our boutique. It is a wonderful and fun environment to spend time each week.

- On our palliative care floor in Hospice House – volunteers sit with patients, share musical talents, read, support nursing staff and interact with families. **Due to COVID-19, this program is currently on hold**
