ORGANIZATION: Hospice Compassus

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Do you cut hair? Wouldn't you feel good about cutting a hospice patient's hair, because they can't get out to a salon or barbershop?

Join our volunteer team with your special skills and make a patient's day by cutting their hair. Requests will be intermittent and occasional, so it's not a major commitment. But you WILL make a difference in someone's life!

A thorough volunteer orientation is provided. Background check and TB testing are also required. All of these are provided free of charge.

COVID Vaccine required.
