You can make a difference - one life at a time.
Hold a hand. Drive a car. Use a computer. Address envelopes. Feed a pet. Make a speech. Bake a cake. Ring up a sale. Make phone calls. Listen to cherished memories. Pat a shoulder. Give a hug. Touch a heart.
Wherever you choose to volunteer at Suncoast Hospice and Empath Health, there's a place for you. Whether you want to work directly with patients and families or in another role, you can make a big difference in someone's life, including your own.
