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.
Volunteers are the HEART of Heartland Hospice! We are looking for Veterans who live in Janesville, or a surrounding community, to join our growing team of volunteers! We recognize that Veterans share a special bond. The goal of our Vet-to-Vet Volunteer Program is to match Veteran patients with a hospice trained Veteran volunteer who may have a similar background. Veteran volunteers can provide friendly visits to Veteran patients and their families. Others may participate in our We Honor Veterans pinning ceremonies. As a volunteer, you help determine which tasks you’re best suited to perform. Service hours are extremely flexible and scheduled according to your availability and location. If you've got a little extra time to give to a Veteran patient, call or email Heartland Volunteer Coordinator Janine today to learn more about our unique volunteer opportunities: 815-397-3691; firstname.lastname@example.org. We're waiting to hear from you! Veteran Volunteer requirements: must be at least 18 years of age; agree to a background/reference check; have reliable transportation; and attend an orientation where you'll learn about the philosophy of hospice and our company, how to effectively communicate with our patients and their families, and the volunteer role.
