Passionate Hospice Volunteers Needed

When you become a Seton hospice volunteer, you’re not joining just any group; you’re becoming a part of a family – the Seton family. Our volunteers offer a helping hand and a kind word during what can be a time of stress and uncertainty for our patients and families. Did you know that the word “companion” is not only a noun, but also a verb? “Companion” means “to accompany”. To be a companion volunteer is not only to be a friend and companion, but it also means to accompany someone on a journey. In the case of being a hospice volunteer, you are one who accompanies another on their journey at the end of life. If this sounds like something you can do or are interested in more information on becoming a hospice volunteer, please contact us.

Trash Cleanup along Comanche Trail

Please help us clean up Comanche Trail where it goes through the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve! Over time, litter and dumped materials build up, affecting the waterways and wildlife on the preserve, and making the area less attractive. We'll meet along Comanche Trail south of the Oasis near the preserve gate (map link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=16r95lYY-RAYjf7U-bxS86n-WH092RBcA&usp=sharing). There's room to park along the road and also just inside the preserve gate. We'll be picking up trash, recyclables, and some dumped materials from the roadside and inside the preserve. We'll provide all the tools including gloves and bags. Please just wear sturdy closed-toed shoes, long pants, and bring sun protection.

Open Volunteer Planned Activities

Every Monday morning and Tuesday evening, folks from the community come in to help us roll, sort, test, package and stamp. Bring your passion and your creativity. We’ll be sorting through donations. This could include testing paints, sorting beads or perhaps putting buttons into bags. Stop by for 30 minutes or stay for a few hours. We invite families with children ages 5+ to volunteer together. On Thursdays, we're busy rolling fabric! This is fun for folks who love to sew as you get first pick of fabric donations. We need help measuring, rolling and pricing. Same as with other opportunities, you can come for all or part of the time. Have a sewing project you'd like to share or need some help on? Feel free to bring that along as well.
