A note from our Volunteer Coordinator:

"Howdy, Union! My name is Brian Garner and I am so honored to have the opportunity to build the volunteer program at Crescent Hospice. Having been a hospice volunteer for 4 years, I have seen first-hand the impact of every single volunteer that stands up and says 'YES! I will help!'. A hospice volunteer is unique in the fact that we are serving those who are on the most important part of their journey. Hospice has greatly assisted my own family through loss, so I find immense joy in giving back to our community that has been there for us. If you are considering joining our team, I would love to talk to you and answer any questions you may have!"

Please contact Brian at (864) 542-6655 and/or BrianGarner@hospicesc.com with any questions or if you are ready to begin an application!
