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.

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.
