Volunteers are needed in many areas:  patient sitting, working in the Hospice House, running errands, selling, and sorting donations, repair work, clerical, fundraising and many other exciting opportunities that provide services to patients and families with advanced illness.

Volunteer Training will be held May 2nd and 3rd from 9 AM – 3 PM at the Hospice Volunteer Community Center, 217 North Creek Blvd, Greenwood, SC.  Evening date and time to be arranged upon request.
