“I wanted to do something with an organization that helps people.  My sister had hospice. And I was very thankful for having them. When I had time to volunteer, I chose to volunteer for hospice, and I am still glad I did four years later! I love going to the office because everybody is warm, friendly and the atmosphere is uplifting.”
