Volunteer week

Compassus’s Volunteer Coordination Julie Logan-Mayes stands with Manchester Mayor Lonnie Norman, who just signed a proclamation to make April 7-13 Volunteer Week in the City of Manchester. The proclamation honors hospice care volunteers. 

Manchester Mayor Lonnie Norman proclaimed April 7-13, 2019 to be National Volunteer Week in the City of Manchester.

This was done to celebrate volunteers in hospice care and highlighted the 50 volunteers at Compassus Hospice, Palliative Care and Home Health, who provide more than 1,800 hours of service in the community per week, according to the proclamation.

“These volunteers are essential members of hospice and palliative care teams that care for an estimated 1.6 million hospice patients every year and ensure that they live with hope, dignity and love despite serious and life-limiting illness,” said Norman in the proclamation.
