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.
Be the person who brings peace and comfort to a veteran with cancer: become a hospice volunteer. Volunteers talk with, read aloud to and sit with patients, helping them in their final months of life. As a veteran, you can provide the special understanding that another veteran needs when speaking about his/her experiences. The patient's family also truly appreciates the help! Heartland will train you and walk every step of the hospice volunteer journey with you. The gift of a small amount of your time could bring about accceptance and peace to a veteran nearing the end. Contact Heartland Hospice today to learn how you can help! Call 734-973-1145 or visit https://www.heartlandhospice.com/volunteers/volunteer-opportunities/
