Are you looking for a unique volunteer position this summer? Love to garden and give back to your community? We have the volunteer position for you!
Every day, our volunteers bring love and kindness to our patients on hospice. We are searching for some talented volunteers that can bring very basic landscaping/mowing/gardening skills to help our patients and caregivers. Our vision is to visit our home-based patients and caregivers once a month to mow, clean, maintain their yard.
Next steps are: interviewing with the Volunteer Coordinator, we will need to conduct two reference checks and background checks, you will receive a free Tuberculosis test, and a Heartland Hospice training with the Volunteer Coordinators.
Please note, the location is in the Greater Richmond Area, and will not be held at 10800 Midlothian Turnpike, but rather at our home-based hospice patient’s homes in the Greater Richmond area.
If you have any questions or would like to get help our hospice patients email or call (804)288-0235 and ask for the Volunteer Coordinator.
We'll work with your schedule.
