Volunteers Needed!

"Seek to share joy with others and you will find your own soul radiant with the joy you wished for another."

I am a hospice social worker for Harmony Hospice in Salt Lake City. We are really in need of volunteers, so if you or anyone you know would be interested in volunteering in any way, please let me know. You can really volunteer as much or as little as you would like. There are a certain amount of hours involved in training (can't remember how many), but it's really flexible and I think most of the training can be done from videos you can watch when it's convenient for you. Anyway, I feel very blessed to work in this field. It's not an easy job, but it is incredibly rewarding. We have so many patients that would benefit so much from just a little extra TLC, but we just don't have enough volunteers to go around. We have volunteers who visit people in their homes or nursing home, people who share musical talents, help with our "one last wish" (similar to make-a-wish), give hand massages and/or manicures, meal prep, run errands for patients, yard/lawn work, crafts, caregiver relief/respite, read to patients, write letters/cards, donate food or make monetary donations, help with marketing, administrative work, etc...There are lots of options. You could always do a one-time thing (for family home evening or something) as well and just donate a few hours making cards, crafts or collecting food. Anyway, if you are interested, please let me know and I can get you in touch with our volunteer coordinator who can give you more details. Just leave a comment or you can email me at Thanks!
