National Volunteer Week
Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” We describe our volunteers as an extra special group of committed citizens. They help improve the quality of life of those in their end-of-life journey, directly through patient care and indirectly by supporting those who provide the care. We take National Volunteer Week, April 23-29, 2017, to recognize this selfless group of people who come together for our mission, to enhance the quality of life for individuals and their loved ones touched by a terminal illness. So to our dedicated and passionate volunteer team, we thank you for all you do. Our volunteers are walking “angels” who spread love, provide support and lend a hand that is always appreciated and needed!
