Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Do you live in Walworth County? Do you enjoy making crafts? Can you crochet and/or knit? Turn your hobby into healing by becoming a craft volunteer...all from the comforts of your own home! Heartland Hospice needs more talented craft volunteers to donate items that will bring comfort to patients facing life-limiting illnesses. The sky's the limit when it comes to what will bring a smile to a patient's face, but some suggestions include: crocheted lap blankets/shawls/slippers, cards for every occasion (birthdays, holidays, "thinking of you," etc.), veterans appreciation items, stuffed animals (teddy bears) or any other craft item that will brighten a patient's room.
Once you have items ready to donate, staff will gladly pick them up at the volunteer's destination of choice or donations can be dropped off at our Kenosha business office. This is your chance to make a BIG difference without even leaving your doorstep! Please contact Heartland Volunteer Coordinator Diamond at email@example.com or 262-652-4730 if you're interested in donating handmade gifts of comfort to our hospice patients. We're waiting to hear from you!
Heartland Hospice provides end-of-life services to patients and their families throughout Southeastern Wisconsin: Kenosha, Milwaukee, Racine, Waukesha, Walworth, Jefferson, Dodge, Washington, Ozaukee.
