Volunteer 'help wanted' opportunities

If you are interested in any of these positions or know someone who might be, email the Volunteer Services Department or call 919-828-0890.

1. Hospice Home Administrative Volunteer (Raleigh)

This volunteer will assemble admission packets, call families to notify them of items left behind, and file.
Schedule: 2-3 hours, once a week (day of the week and time can be flexible).

2. Care Notes and Mailings for Transitions GriefCare

Each month we send out Care Notes to our bereaved families and volunteers help prepare these mailings. It involves sorting papers, stuffing envelopes, etc.
Schedule: 2-3 hours, once a month (usually the 2nd Monday of the month) and as needed for special mailings.
September schedule: Monday, September 8 at 9:00am.

3. Tech Savvy Volunteers (Location flexible)

Our Legacy Program helps preserve and share hospice patients’ stories for future generations. The patient’s family is presented with a video montage of the recorded audio of the patient’s story and scanned family photos. In order to get this program off the ground, we need volunteers to edit recorded audio and produce the Legacy CD for the patient/family.
Schedule: Ongoing.

4. Snacks (Raleigh)
There are many times when family members do not want to leave the patient’s side so we try to have nutritious snacks available to them. Let us know if you or someone you know is interested in donating a specific snack on a regular basis or can help donate in any way.  Suggestions: Chewy or crunchy granola bars, breakfast cereal bars, peanut butter crackers, cheese crackers, Rice Krispie treats, chip variety packs, cookie assortments, fruit flavored snacks, peanuts, cashews, almonds, etc. (All snacks must be individually wrapped).
Schedule: Ongoing.
