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.
Catawba Regional Hospice is a proud member (level 4, highest level) of the We Honor Veterans program. We Honor Veterans is a national program designed to empower hospice staff to meet the unique needs of terminally ill veterans.
Veterans are needed in Alexander County to provide a pinning ceremony to our Veteran patients. Requested by the patient or family member, this short but special ceremony outwardly acknowledges the Veteran patients service to our country. The Veteran volunteer presents the patient with an American flag pin, along with a certificate representative of their branch of service. Honoring their service and letting our veterans know that we recognize and appreciate their sacrifice can help them find peace at the end of their life’s journey.
All volunteers must complete an application, including 2 personal or professional references, along with a criminal background check.
Two TB skin tests are required. No cost to the volunteer.
Brief training done at a convenient location to the volunteer
Shadow an experienced volunteer to observe a pinning ceremony
