Hospice seeks summer volunteers

Published 12:47 am Saturday, April 30, 2016

Now that summer is upon us and many are thinking what is something different I could do this year? I have the perfect suggestion!! Why not give some of your time to volunteering!

Here at SouthernCare Hospice there are a lot of ways you can get involved in volunteering, and the rewards of doing something for somebody else far out ways the satisfaction of any time that you give!! Here at SouthernCare Hospice we have a variety of programs you can choose from; Patient and Family Support, Bereavement mail outs that are done here at the office , helping to answer phones at the office, helping at community events such as health fairs, festivals ,birthday parties and special events at several of the nursing facilities or senior centers we visit. There are other ways you can get involved such as making blankets for our patients, baking homemade bake goods, and helping to do yard work such as cleaning flower beds and cut grass for a patient! We even have a Teen Volunteer Program for high school students that are 16 or older, this is a great way for them to receive community service hours for applying for college scholarship applications.

The ways you can make a difference in the life of another are endless! I encouraged everyone to please consider volunteering to help others in 2016! Not only does it help them and you, but it also improves the community you live in!

If you are interested in becoming a SouthernCare Hospice volunteer or would like more information please call us at 334-222-0404.
