I recently attended an activity with the Gentiva Hospice volunteers. These volunteers minister to Hospice patients in the Clovis area. They get together about 4 times a year for team building and do something special for their patients.
Gentiva Hospice making Valentines
They gathered at Unique Creations, a local crafting mall and studio, to make valentine cards. In a few hours, 15 guys and gals were able to crank out almost 100 cards. Their leader, Sharon Null had everything ready to go ahead of time.
Volunteering with Gentiva Hospice benefits both giver and recipient.
Card making and any craft is a great tool for bonding and team building. There is the added benefit of having something to show for your team work! People may not realize it, but art actually releases endorphins which not only feel good, but are good for your immune system! Bonus!
Gentiva Hospice is a great way to serve the community. You can help people and make lasting friendships. If you would like to become a volunteer or just get together with the group for their next project to help out, contact Sharon Null at 575-749-2086 or send her an email.
