Volunteers

Hospice has a large team of dedicated volunteers at both Bobby’s Hospice and at The Hospice Shoppe who provide significant value to the organization by supporting the work of the staff and serving as important community champions. 

Patient/Family Volunteers at Bobby’s Hospice work alongside our nursing staff to provide non-medical support services. Volunteers work in four-hour shifts during the day and in the early evening (8:00 am – 12:00 noon; 12:00 noon – 4:00 pm and 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm).

Grief and Bereavement Volunteers at Bobby’s Hospice help out with our grief support groups and services.

Food Service Volunteers at Bobby’s Hospice work with our cooks to prepare food for patients, bake for families and make jams and pickles.

Administrative Volunteers at Bobby’s Hospice help out with tax receipting, data entry, mailing, answering phones, etc.

Fundraising Volunteers help out with our four major annual fundraising events: Summer BBQ’s, Valentine Gala, Hike for Hospice and Sunflower Luncheon.

Hospice Shoppe Volunteers work at the Hospice Shoppe alongside the retail staff and help out with customer service, sorting, pricing, displays, check out, etc. 

Hospice volunteers are in a position of trust with access to private healthcare and business information and Hospice resources. As a result, our criteria for acceptance into the Hospice Volunteer Program are very strict. Applicants must pass an intensive screening process and meet all of the qualifications and requirements of the volunteer position. Once accepted, volunteers undergo extensive training relevant to their position.

Volunteering at Hospice is rewarding and fun. You get to work with some of nicest people and go home each day knowing you have made a difference in someone else’s life. If you have a special talent or just some time to spare, join our Volunteer Team. You’ll be glad you did!
