Hospice Thanks Volunteers for $Million Contribution
Hospice CEO Ginny Green says the Hospice’s volunteer army has reached a level of contribution never seen before. “Our volunteers contribute a massive 929 hours each and every week of the year, and that’s not counting all the volunteers who help us with our street appeal, the trailer raffle, working bees and various other contributions throughout the year. “Our reception volunteers are the welcoming face and voice of the Hospice out of hours, our gardeners keep our beautiful environment so special for those who are in our inpatient unit or attending education at the Hospice in North East Valley. Our kitchen team go out of their way to meet patients and families’ needs. Our housekeepers work hard every weekend to ensure our space is perfect for patients.
Our shops continue to hum because of our 250 plus
volunteers who keep things running smoothly. And
people’s stories – no matter what their history –
are a rich treasure trove for families, and it is
wonderful to be able to offer our volunteer
biography service to patients throughout
“We are so grateful to our terrific volunteer
workforce who bring skills, friendship and
wisdom to our Hospice service.”
Otago Community Hospice is appealing to the community to help it break even following six months of fraught fundraising.
