Travel Diary in a T-Shirt Quilt
Quilt created from t-shirts collected around the world. As a special request from a patient's husband, a Gentiva volunteer assembled 36 t-shirts to make this fabulous quilt as a reminder of their worldwide travels.

Minimal sewing skills (just a straight line will do!) required. Volunteers sew in their own homes at their convenience.

Do you have some time to create or complete (stuffing pillows, etc.) comfort items for hospice patients? If so, please join our volunteer team!

We are looking for volunteers to make a variety of items to make patients' lives easier and more comfortable--activity mats, pillows, neck pillows, lap blankets, tote bags, memory pillows, and more.

At Kindred Hospice, our first priority is the care and comfort of our patients and families. We make every effort to ensure their comfort by providing items handmade by volunteers. Join our team of outstanding volunteers!

Volunteer Orientation sessions are offered each month. Call (614.414.0500) or email (kimberlyn.wideman@kindredhospicecare.com) for more information or to register.
