1. Hospice Home Music Library (Raleigh)

We are trying to add to the Hospice Home music library to provide more offerings for our patients. We are accepting donations of CDs and/or if you would like to help organize the CDs.
Schedule: Ongoing.

2. 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 video montage for the patient/family.
Schedule: Ongoing.

3. 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.
