Good Shepherd Hospice: Vet to Vet Volunteer Wanted
5 people are interested
Good Shepherd is looking for Veterans who want to volunteer to visit our Veteran Patients. Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to relate, connect, share stories about serving our country and give strength to our veteran patients. Veteran Volunteers help enhance the quality of life for veteran hospice patients during times of reflection and this creates a common bond that means so much to our patients and their families.
Volunteering with Veteran Hospice patients takes as little as two hours a week. Can you spare two hours a week to put a smile on the face of a veteran that is going through a hard time? What a wonderful gift that would be and it is so special to our patients and the patients family.
Please contact,Gabby Weeks (816) 945-0800 to get started. You can also email her at email@example.com
