About

This volunteering opportunity allows you to create your own schedule. Training and certification is provided at no cost.

Clerical Volunteers

Hospice Volunteers are one of the few who can make a true difference in someone’s life by offering a small portion of their time, energy, and skills. We are always on the lookout for such dedicated, compassionate individuals to join our dynamic Volunteer Team.

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.

What Kind of Volunteering Would I Do?

At this time, Hospice of the Chesapeake is currently seeking a permanent clerical volunteer who is able to dedicate 4 hours a week of their time. Dedicated and compassionate volunteers would perform light clerical at our Prince George’s County office. Responsibilities would include welcoming guests at the reception area, triaging any phone calls, greeting visitors, etc. We would limit any tasks to activities that would be easily performed at the front desk.

You will be allowed to pick your own hours, but we would prefer a fixed time and day (for example Wednesday 9am-1am or Friday 12pm-4pm, etc).

When Will I Volunteer?

No previous experience is required and training will occur on site with staff members. Our office is open 8:00 am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday and you will be able to pick your own schedule, provided you are able to volunteer 4hrs/week.

We are especially in need of volunteers during the following days and times:

  • Tuesdays between 8am and 12pm
  • Wednesdays between 8am and 4pm
  • Thursdays between 8am and 4pm
  • Fridays between 8am and 4pm

Where Will I Volunteer?

Our clerical volunteers work out of our office location in Largo, MD. This location is not a hospice, but where we provide on-site bereavement counseling and a number of other administrative services. We also have a kitchen on site (including microwave, fridge, coffee maker, etc.) if you would lke to pack your own meals.
