Community Hospice & Palliative Care Recognizes National Volunteer Month

April 4, 2024 (Jacksonville, Fla.) – As April marks National Volunteer Month, Community Hospice & Palliative Care reaffirms its dedication to promoting and celebrating the invaluable contributions of volunteers. Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization, providing companionship and a compassionate presence to patients and their families during challenging times.

Throughout the month, Community Hospice & Palliative Care will spotlight individual volunteers and their inspiring stories through various social media platforms. These narratives will highlight the profound impact that volunteers have on the lives of those they serve and showcase the diverse ways in which they enrich our community.

To express gratitude for their selfless service, Community Hospice & Palliative Care will host a special Volunteer Appreciation Celebration at The University of North Florida.

Ashley Howell, Manager of Volunteer Services, underscored the remarkable contributions of our volunteers, revealing, "In 2023, our volunteers collectively saved our organization over $1.2 million by generously dedicating more than 58,000 service hours.
