Hospice needs licensed hairdressers!

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Augusta Health Hospice of the Shenandoah

Hairdressers are needed to visit patients in their homes when they can no longer get out to give them a haircut! We serve Staunton, Wayneboro and Augusta County. After volunteer training and on-boarding is completed, you determine your schedule from there. You can volunteer five hours a week or two hours a month...the schedule is up to you and your availability. Join our team and complete some of the most rewarding haircuts you've ever done! We would love to have you.
