Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Star Hospice Evergreen Park

Veteran-to- Veteran Volunteer Opportunity

Share Your Smile. Share Your Patriotic Pride. Share Your Time.

The Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer program aims to pair recruited Veteran Volunteers with Hospice Patients who have been identified as Veterans through the We Honor Veterans program. A Veteran Volunteer can support Veterans with companion visits, friendly conversations, sharing stories, reading to patients, watching TV and movies together, and listening to music together. Spending time with a Veteran patient can help relieve the patient’s anxiety and affirm the patient’s value.

If you are a U.S. Military Veteran and have 4 hours a month
