Honor Salute Volunteers
Would you like to reach out to veterans and make a difference in your community?
Hospice of the Chesapeake is a fully licensed, community-based non-profit organization. We provide services to terminally ill patients at the place that they call home - regardless of their age or ability to pay. In order to provide the best possible service to our patients and their families, Hospice of the Chesapeake depends on the generous support from the community, key business partners, and philanthropic operations to improve the quality of life for those in our community experiencing advanced illness or bereavement.
Hospice of the Chesapeake Cares About our Veterans
Hospice of the Chesapeake is routinely involved in a number of programs to enrich the lives of our veteran patient’s, military families, and veterans within the community. In addition, we collaborate with veteran centered nonprofits to further their causes as well.
Whether it's our Vet to Vet program, helping a veteran's organization raise money, or just providing the best care possible to our veteran patients and their families, HoC wants you to know we care about veterans and their service.
What is the Honor Salute Program?
Started over 4 years ago and so successful it was featured in the Baltimore Sun, our Honor Salute Program aims to honor our valued veteran patients in a unique way.
Volunteers will join a Midshipmen from the Annapolis Naval Academy to honor veterans for their service in the military. The midshipmen present certificates to our veteran patients thanking them for their honorable military service.
This is a fantastic opportunity to pay respect to some of America's greatest heroes, whether you're a civilian, a future member of the military, or a veteran yourself.
