We are looking for volunteers or a group of volunteers to make care packages for our Veterans. Heartland Hospice serves patients who are terminally ill with a prognosis of under 6 months. It is our goal to make the last days of their lives as comfortable and as meaningful as possible. This year on Veteran's Day we would like to deliver care packages to our patients who served their country through military service. We currently have approximately 45 Veterans on service.
Care packages need to be delivered to our business office between November 2-6. Staff will deliver them to our Veteran's the following week.
Care packages can be made using small boxes or gift bags and suggested items are:
1-2 pairs of good socks
hard candy or chocolate
letters, drawings, and cards
patriotic masks, lanyards, bandanas, pens, etc.
what else can you think of? Be creative, have fun, and keep in mind the dietary and safety issues that may be involved with a person who is facing a terminal illness.
Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Dana Criss, is you or your group would like to commit to a number of packages. Thanks so much!
