Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County, an affiliate of Ohio’s Hospice, is celebrating National Volunteer Week, April 18-24.…
Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County volunteers have found new ways to support the organization’s mission from home during COVID-19.
“The volunteers are eager to help in any way that they can,” said Beth Shrake, volunteer coordinator at Ohio’s Hospice of Miami County. “Our volunteers have been writing notes of cheer, making phone calls to some patients, and making face mask covers. We’ve been sending our volunteers cards and emails to keep their spirits up.”
So far, the group of volunteers has made 250 face mask covers. In addition, the volunteer services team has worked with the Veteran volunteers to create a way to do virtual pinnings during this time.
“It is really cool to be doing this for them,” Shrake said. “It will be good to have in the future in the case there was another reason we could not get into the home.”
