Compassus Hospice is seeking volunteers who would like to make small quilts for our patients. Ideally they would be 4x5 feet or 4x6 feet, but any size is welcome of course! These hand made quilts can bring a lot of joy and comfort to people at the end of life, as they are a remembrance of when they were younger.

Do you feel called to give the gift of your time and talent to make quilts for our patients? If so, please email Kim Iannacci at kimberly.iannacci@compassus.com or call the office at 978 777-8222.

You can make a difference in the life of someone at the end of life!
