Veterans with a BIG heart for other Veterans
Two ways to volunteer in our Veteran to Veteran Program:
1. We are in desperate need of veteran volunteers to be an important part of our Veteran Certificate Presentations and pinning ceremonies.
Every veteran admitted to our hospice program is offered the Certificate of Appreciation and flag pin.
This presentation is all the more meaningful to our veterans when another veteran is presenting the certificate and pinning the flag pin on their lapel.
Presentations are scheduled based on your availability, we are extremely flexible to your readiness.
The presentations themselves only take a few minutes, but are appreciated long after by our veterans, their families and our staff.
2. A great need exists for veteran volunteers to be paired with a veteran on our service at the end of their journey. This pairing gives our patients an opportunity to communicate with those with similar life experience.
Visits can be thirty minutes to two hours, whatever time commitment you have, we have a need.
Volunteering with hospice is one of the most rewarding ways to volunteer. Please consider helping a fellow veteran.
