Purpose: To bring smiles and show gratitude to essential workers across the communities that Moments Hospice serves.
Target Placement Organizations: The following is a list of targeted locations and should be in surrounding communities of Moments Hospice branches and their customers. Target organizations include:
Blood/Plasma Donor locations (Red Cross)
Delivery Truck Depots (UPS, USPS, FEDEX)
Community Health Centers
Home Health Agencies
Placement by: Volunteer Teams
Signs per Location: 1 - 4 signs, dependent on stretch of land where you can place them. Use best judgement.
Target Placement Location: 1 - along busiest roadside horizontally, so traffic from both ways can see, 2 - along entry way, where essential workers enter/exit their parking lot
Placement Logistics: Volunteer receives list of targeted locations from Moments Hospice Volunteer Coordinator. Volunteer makes live visits to organizations, asking for permission from local staff to put 2 signs out on their year. Volunteer also asks if they are willing to come outside to take a picture by their organization’s sign (so we know where they are from), and if they are willing for it to be on social media. Volunteer keeps track of where the signs are left and how many.
Script: "Hello, my name is XXX, a volunteer of Moments Hospice, a local hospice company. Moments Hospice would like to show our gratitude to your teams of essential workers by placing a "Thank you Essential Workers" and "Heroes Work Here" signs. We hope that this not only brings a smile to your employees faces, but also it shouts out to others the special work that you are all doing during these COVID-19 times." If Yes, "Thank you so much! Would you us taking a picture in front of your place? Would you mind coming out to hold the sign? Either way, we like to give a shout out to you on social media, if you are ok with that." If No to sign placement, "I understand. Please do pass on thank you from Moments Hospice for all that you and your teams are doing!"
Pictures: As above, please take pictures at every opportunity to capture the signs, even if there is no one in the picture. Please try to get the organization’s sign in the picture so we know where you are. Please text or email pictures to Moments Hospice Volunteer Coordinator.

We aim to add value to patients and their families at the end-of-life, and assist them to create moments to remember.
Hospice is about living, about giving people access to what they need so they will have the best quality of life during a difficult time. Patients who choose hospice have made the decision, along with their families and doctors, to change cure goals for comfort goals. Hospice believes that through personalized services and a caring community, patients and their loved ones can obtain the necessary preparation for death so that it can be not merely a period of sorrow, but one which gives them deeper understanding of life.
