Save to Favorites

Bridge Hospice

  • 13 people are interested
Bridge Logo

Veteran patients at the end of life are requesting volunteers to sit with them and provide a friendly visit. They need someone to listen to their life experiences and stories of heroism of their fallen brothers and sisters . Often times our Veterans are forgotten and their stories go unheard.

Bridge Hospice is looking for volunteers to support our Veterans in their final time of need. If you'd like to make a difference in a life of a Veteran, please contact: the Volunteer Coordinator, Lori McVicar.

We honor and serve veterans at the end of life in Alameda, Contra Costa, Monterey, and Santa Clara Counties.
