Hospice Volunteers are Servants hearts. YOU are precious for offering your time and YOU are making an IMPACT in the world, INSPIRING OTHERS - one patient, one family at a time.
-----------
Giving "our Time" equals Love - it translates to Hope, and brings comfort to others.
* I volunteered to care for the homeless in Athens TX. Our team had sheltered, fed, clothed, gave bed & bath, and prayed, offering spiritual support with the homeless people. One man in particular just needed a little company, someone to talk to. ...
... before I left - he thanked me for my offering - "my Time".
