Compassus Hospice in N. Andover MA is looking for donations of handmade prayer shawls and prayer blankets. People typically find great comfort from a warm blanket or shawl. Imagine the joy you can bring to someone with a handmade gift made with love? Do you have the gift of knitting, crocheting or quilting? If making these items for people at the end of life speaks to your heart, then this may be the volunteer opportunity for you. We serve our patients where they live- nursing homes, assisted living facilities and their own homes. We have many patients in the Malden/Medford area and beyond that could benefit from your kindness.
For information on how you can bring comfort to people at the end of life contact Kim Iannacci at Kimberly.Iannacci@compassus.com or call Kim at 978 -777-8222.

Serving as a volunteer will enrich your own life in ways you can’t begin to imagine.
