Community Hospice is seeking rays of sunshine

| January 20, 2021

Community Hospice needs your help to provide Rays of Sunshine to patients and their caregivers. Project Sunshine is a year-round initiative driven by generous individuals, community groups or organizations who provide small gifts to brighten the lives of those receiving Hospice services. Examples of gift ideas include, but are not limited to: Treat bags, handmade sewing projects, handwritten cards of encouragement, gift bags/baskets with small items such as lotions, lip balm, nail polish, snack bars. No gift is too small, and rest assured, any gesture of kindness will bring a ray of sunshine and a smile to their faces.

Additionally, we are also always looking for kind, compassionate community members to add to the volunteer program. If you desire to support a local non-profit organization or have a passion for helping provide care and support to those most in need, consider becoming a volunteer. Due to the challenges of COVID, Community Hospice is now excited to offer online training and have many volunteering opportunities that will keep health and safety in mind.
