4 people are interested
The first holiday after the loss of a loved one is exceptionally hard. To help the families and friends of our patients who have passed get through this difficult period, Good Shepherd Hospice began hosting a special holiday event in 2007 called Lights of Remembrance.
This event includes music of the season - both spiritual and secular, readings from staff and members in the community, lighting of a candle by each participant in recognition for those that are gone, and the lighting of our holiday tree.
We are in need of volunteers to help with set up, parking, refreshments, and clean up. This is a perfect service opportunity for a youth group.
About Good Shepherd Hospice

Good Shepherd Hospice strives to provide quality palliative care and relieve the suffering of those in our communities affected by life-limiting illnesses and end-of-life issues, maintaining the highest ethical standards, so all may live as fully and comfortably as possible.
Hospice care allows those no longer seeking curative treatment to die in comfort and peace, and in control of their surroundings, with supportive care extending to the entire family network. Good Shepherd Hospice provides care to almost half of all those who die in our communities, serving Polk, Highlands and Hardee counties. Care is based on medical need without regard to race, age, ability to pay, creed, gender, lifestyle, or illness. As a non-profit organization, we are able to provide charitable care through generous donations and the special care that our volunteers provide.
