Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

Seasons Hospice is looking for Volunteers to visit patients in Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Cupertino, and Palo Alto.
As a Seasons Hospice Volunteer, you'll help patients and family members by offering emotional support and companionship. Volunteer activities with patients include: Reading out loud, listening to music, writing letters, doing crafts, asking patients to tell their life stories, but most of all, becoming a friend with someone dealing with a terminal illness. You will work directly with our medical team, our social workers, and music therapists to ensure that the patient receives optimal care. Seasons Hospice will provide training, and opportunities for volunteers to attend weekly medical meetings.
