Winning Quotes for NHPCO’s National Volunteer Week Social Media Campaign

In honor of National Volunteer week, NHPCO held an online social media campaign, Celebrating Hospice Volunteers Online. This campaign allowed anyone to submit a quote about hospice volunteering via NHPCO’s Facebook page. NHPCO is thrilled in the participation this campaign received online. We received dozens of submissions via Facebook and even more via direct email or via the Moments of Life: Made Possible by Hospice website.

How Winners Were Chosen

We would like every participant to know that voting was very close and there were several ties. We wish we could feature every quote and a full participant list can be found at the bottom of this page.

"What makes hospice volunteering so important is that it gives both volunteers from the community and a professional hospice to build a connection for providing end of life care. This connection builds trust to receive heart to heart caring and healing for the whole person, family and friends, available locally and at a time when it is needed most."  - Bill Probstifield, Heart of Hospice, Heart-to-Heart Volunteer
  4.
