Tallahassee, FL - Covenant Hospice is asking for your help. It needs volunteer adults and high school students.
The hospice held volunteer training Tuesday.
Covenant Hospice Volunteer Training gives an overview of hospice care and volunteer choices.
Individuals and groups are needed to provide support for Covenant including office work, community outreach, and fundraising.
Patient and family support volunteers are needed to provide friendly visits, companionship, breaks for caregivers, light housekeeping, transportation, assistance with yard work, home repair, and more.
Active duty military and veteran volunteers are needed to support Covenant's We Honor Veteran's Program.
Fourteen-year-old Ashli Price attended Tuesday's workshop. She says volunteering is important to her.
She says, "My papi passed away in December. Hospice, I just really enjoyed how they treated our family. So, I guess this is kind of me giving back."
Another workshop will be held Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
If you'd like to be a volunteer, call Covenant Hospice in Tallahassee at (850) 576-4998.
