Why do you volunteer with Hospice of the Red River Valley?
Volunteering for Hospice has provided me a way to pay it forward. My mother passed away four years ago. During her last few months, Hospice guided us through the end of Mom’s journey. Being a volunteer is a privilege.
What’s you favorite volunteer memory?
One of my patients wished she would have traveled in her life. She specifically wanted to see Ireland. At her bedside we ‘traveled’ to Ireland. I played the sounds of the ocean and the mist of the rain while I described tours from websites to ‘experience the trip’.

One person can not change the world, but together we can make a difference. I would encourage others to volunteer for Hospice of the Red River Valley. Through my experience I have gained much more than I have given.
