HopeWest is looking for dedicated people to make volunteering their New Year's resolution in 2014.
Volunteer opportunities at HopeWest are as unique as the people giving their time.
HopeWest is seeking volunteers to help with Heirlooms for Hospice upscale resale shop, administrative office support, special events and patient & family support at nursing homes, assisted living facilities or patients' homes.
At Heirlooms for Hospice volunteers help creatively display merchandise, greet and help customers, cashier and clean and repair donated items.
Administrative volunteers can support the mission by performing general office functions like answering the phone, filing, computer data entry or helping with other important projects.
Special-event volunteers can help with setup or assist at the events.
Patient and family support volunteers can participate in a variety of activities such as: visiting with a patient, sharing hobbies and stories, reading to a patient, running errands, relieving the caregiver for a small amount of time and providing transportation.
Volunteering is such a rewarding experience, Joyce Raney explains. "I wanted to give back to the community; what I didn't realize was that I was getting much more than I could give — if I volunteered seven days a week I couldn't repay HopeWest for all that they've done for me. It gives me peace, joy and hope."
"Our patients need your help," said clinical director Starla Bacon. "HopeWest volunteers make everything possible in this organization. Each volunteer makes a fundamental impact on the lives of others in our community. We have a need for volunteers to give of their time and talents in a variety of ways."
