About

Do you live in Will 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 Frankfort business office. This is your chance to make a BIG difference without even leaving your doorstep! Please contact Heartland Volunteer Coordinator Belinda at Belinda.obrien@hcr-manorcare.com or 815-469-7100 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 Will County, Southern Cook County, Kankakee County and Grundy County.
