April 15-21 is National Volunteer Week. The Hospice of Dubuque staff would like to recognize the volunteers who willingly donate their time and talents to help others.
They would like to give special tribute to their own Hospice of Dubuque volunteers –approximately 120 volunteers who selflessly give of themselves to their organization and to the families they serve. One way they can help the patients and their families is to provide respite, companionship, and support. Volunteers can also help with fundraising events or serve as board members. Hospice of Dubuque is grateful for the dedication their volunteers have shown.
It takes a special person to become a hospice volunteer. Hospice volunteers are people who choose to be part of someone’s end of life journey. It can be an emotional road that many people are not willing to travel, however, hospice volunteers do so with empathy, courage, and grace. They make a difference in the lives of those they touch.
Thank you Hospice of Dubuque volunteers for all you do.
