The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Acacia Hospice is a small not-for-profit end-of-life agency located in Burlington County and serving patients and their families across the region. Our volunteers are treasured members of our hospice family and we are incredibly grateful for the ways they support the work we do.
Veterans are needed to help support other veterans who are receiving end-of-life care through our hospice. Your military background can help a veteran who is at the end of their life share their military experience with someone who has had similar experiences. We are so grateful for your unique ability to connect with another veteran and to offer support by listening and sharing in an important part of their life. We provide training and support for this challenging yet beautiful role as a hospice volunteer.
