The Gift of Your Time

Our volunteers are the heart of Hospice of the Upstate. Without their help, Hospice of the Upstate would not be the successful program that it is today. Our team of volunteers contributes countless hours and performs a multitude of tasks.

No matter whether they are stuffing envelopes, filling the bird feeders, or sitting at the patient’s bedside, our volunteers tell us they receive much more from their experiences then they can give us. Hospice of the Upstate is so blessed to have volunteers that serve with selfless dedication and who inspire us every day.
