About

Do you enjoy making crafts? Can you crochet and/or knit, make cards... 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, Christmas, Valentines, "thinking of you," thank you, etc.)
  • Veterans appreciation items, stuffed animals (teddy bears)
  • any other craft item that will brighten a patient's room.

Items can be dropped off at Heartland's business office in Hurst, mailed to our office at 1845 Precinct Line Road, Suite 107, Hurst, TX 76040, or staff will gladly pick up donations at the volunteer's destination of choice.

This is your chance to make a BIG difference without even leaving your doorstep! Please contact Heartland Volunteer Coordinator Tonya at tonya.eisenhauer@hcr-manorcare.com or 817-849-8880 if you're interested in donating handmade gifts of comfort to our hospice patients. We're waiting to hear from you!

Heartland Hospice provides exceptional end-of-life services to patients and their families throughout the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex.
