National Volunteer Week (April 7-13), is an opportunity to highlight the amazing contributions volunteers make in all walks of life. Each volunteer is an essential part of our team, appreciated every day, and Pilgrims Hospice Society couldn’t do the work we do without their selflessness.
I am struck by such an incredibly diverse, talented and compassionate group of people. To me, the biggest gift of our program volunteers is the personal connections they make, enhancing someone’s life each time they open their heart or take hold of a hand.
When I see the smiles and hear the laughter of our Hospice Day Program clients, I know lives are being honoured and celebrated with care and kindness. Anything I can do to support that work is life-affirming.
This is such an exciting time for Pilgrims Hospice Society! There’s a place for anyone who wants to be involved – from the Hospice Day Program, Home Hospice visits, No One Dies Alone vigils, Expressive Arts for Grieving Children, Teens and Families, to Fundraising and Special Events. As we transition into our new facility, which will also have a residential component, the list of roles and opportunities will grow.
Volunteers at Pilgrims Hospice Society are part of an extraordinary group. If you’re thinking about volunteering – come and join us! Find out more here.
