GUEST COLUMN: Help hospice patients, their families in 2014

Published: Saturday, January 11, 2014 at 07:39 PM.

As you are thinking about your New Year’s resolutions, I encourage you to make one of those resolutions to become a Covenant Hospice volunteer.

When people think about volunteering for hospice, their first thought may be, “I could never do that,” or “I would be too depressed.”

Talk to a Covenant Hospice volunteer and he or she will tell you a different story. 

Covenant volunteers come from many backgrounds — retirees, professionals, active military personnel and high school and college students. But they all have one thing in common: a desire to give back.

And they receive so much in return.

Covenant has opportunities for people with diverse skills and interests.

Volunteers looking for a chance to meet people and be active in the community will love Covenant’s Ambassador Program.
