The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Grace Hospice is a partner in the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization's We Honor Veterans Program. We actively seek to provide our Veteran patients with the companionship of their fellow Veterans with whom they have a special bond. Being a Hospice Volunteer is an opportunity to give another person love in their neediest moments, to lift them up and shine a light into their darkness. There is no other volunteer opportunity like it.
Volunteering with Grace is flexible and can be tailored to your availability. Usually Volunteers visit their patient once a week for about an hour. It is the highlight of many Volunteers' weeks!
Training is provided and the background/ua/2 step TB tests are all paid for by Grace Hospice.
If you would like more information about volunteering with Grace Hospice, we'd love to hear from you!
