Agrace Hospice & Palliative Care would like to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to our many volunteers who make a difference in the lives of our patients, families and staff each day. We would like to especially recognize our volunteers as we celebrate National Volunteer Week, April 6-12. We appreciate the gifts of your time, energy, compassion and talents.

Last year volunteers donated more than 71,000 hours of time to support Agrace’s mission. Some volunteers provide direct support to our patients and families by providing services such as companionship, vigil, respite and transportation. Others support the agency by assisting with office work, welcoming visitors at our front desk or helping at special events.

No matter how Agrace volunteers choose to serve, they enrich and support the services we provide to patients and families by sharing their unique skills and interests. Therapy dogs brighten patients’ days. Vigil volunteers sit bedside late-night hours to ensure that no patient dies alone. Respite volunteers provide caregivers with much needed support. We value and honor the diversity of skills and experiences that our volunteers share with our agency and those we serve.

If you, or someone you know, would be interested in learning more about the many ways that volunteers can help Agrace, please visit agrace.org/volunteer or call the Volunteer Inquiry Line at 608-327-7163.

Agrace volunteers, thank you for your commitment to supporting Agrace patients and families in your own, unique way!

ANDY BORYCZKA
