As part of National Volunteer Week, Covenant Hospice recently honored their volunteers by hosting a Volunteer Banquet themed “Volunteers Build a Better World” at the First Baptist Church in Marianna. Over 70 volunteers attended. Awards were given out to volunteers involved in various departments such as Development, Bereavement, Administration and Family Support. “Covenant Hospice volunteers are the heart of the Covenant team,” said, Sandi Huster, Director of volunteer services for Covenant Hospice.
“Our volunteers receive specialized training to provide companionship and support to patients and their families, as well as a range of fund-raising and administrative support services,” said Huster. In 2009, Covenant Hospice volunteers met 97% of all volunteer needs identified for patients and families.
