National Volunteer Week
Hospice Savannah was founded by volunteers 35 years ago and they remain the critical, committed, and dedicated "glue" that holds us together! View a video about our founding volunteers here.
During National Volunteer Week we thank and recognize all our volunteers past and present.
Perhaps the greatest debt of gratitude is owed to our board members: busy community members who provide countless hours of leadership.  We thank Myra Hill, Board Chair, Hospice Savannah, Inc.

Officers and new members were installed for all three of our boards on March 25th. See the entire list of our volunteer leadership here.
Volunteer Stephen Darr shows his work in our Gallery
Steve Darr retired from SCAD and immediately began volunteering in our administrative offices at Chatham Parkway. Little did we suspect that this gentle, caring man - who is a whiz on Excel, and a phenomenal baker - is also a newly hatched artist!  

Read Steve's fascinating story of becoming an artist late in life here and be sure to join him at his opening reception in the Hospice Savannah Art Gallery on Thursday, April 24th from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Beloved volunteer Les Wilkes...
...is our nominee for this month's United Way of the Coastal Empire Volunteer of the Year award. Les is a tireless volunteer photographer for our patients and their families who has been witness to so many interesting stories.

Here is a recent image of patient Jacob Stoltzman as he is sworn in as an American citizen. Citizenship was very important to him, so our social worker and others on his care team worked hard to make it happen. 

Read Les's full nomination here. We wish him the best of luck.  
Golfing for Hospice Savannah!

We are so grateful to the Wells Fargo Insurance employees who are again volunteering to sponsor a golf tournament on our behalf. This year's Hospice Savannah Tournament is on Friday, May 9th at the Landings Club's Plantation course. Get all the details here.

We also express our gratitude to the organizers of the Tee It Up for Hospice Savannah golf tournament held last Friday at Crosswinds Golf Course.  Tee It Up organizer CeCe Williams is pictured here with Hospice Savannah's Annual Giving Specialist, Ophelia Rodriguez. CeCe hosted the tournament in memory of her aunt, Barbara. 

Camp Aloha is May 2-4
A small army of specially-trained bereavement volunteers will be on hand to work with our Full Circle counselors at this year's children's grief camp. 

Call Full Circle at 912.303.9442 or find more information here.
Thanks to the Savannah Morning News Volunteers!
