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.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
We all have hard days and need a little encouragement. Hospice patients face many hard moments with the road they travel. Brighten a hospice patient’s last days by providing comfort items for cheer baskets. "Cheer baskets" are given to hospice patients in need of a little pick me up. These baskets are filled with items listed below that are donated from individuals in the community.
Volunteers also crochet comfort shawls or lap blankets that provide comfort and warmth for our patients. These treasured handmade items bring additional cheer.
We are always in need of the following items:
Packaged snacks (cookies, crackers,
Granola bars, pudding)
Hard candy or small individually wrapped chocolates
Small Kleenex Packs
Crossword Puzzle, Suduko and Word search books
Magazines (2014-2015) & novels
Deck of cards
Small lap blankets/throws
Lotion (with light scent)
Yarn - for shawls or lap blankets
Please call us with any questions- 509-755-4956
Donated Cheer baskets can be delivered to
