Volunteers are the Foundation of Hospice
This National Hospice Foundation Award recognizes hospice volunteers who best reflect the universal concept of volunteerism in its truest sense – serving as inspiration to others. Recipients of the award have demonstrated considerable commitment in terms of time, amount of responsibility assumed, and longevity; have made a notable impact by significantly strengthening a hospice program or the lives of patients/families served; and have undergone substantial personal growth as hospice volunteers. Nominations for volunteers providing service worthy of national recognition are accepted in the following three categories: Patient/Family Service, for a volunteer whose work puts him or her in direct contact with patients, their families, and friends; Organizational Support, for a volunteer whose work includes fundraising, board, and/or administrative support; and Teen Service, for a teen volunteer who has dedicated time and energy to hospice in a meaningful way, unique to his or her age group. The NCHPP Awards Committee selects the winners for these awards.
