Have a few extra hours a month to spare? Looking for a way to use those hours to help somebody in need? Want to make a new friend?
If the answer to each of those questions is "yes," you might consider becoming a volunteer with Heritage Hospice, a Danville-based, nonprofit organization which serves nearly 100 patients and clients in Boyle, Garrard, Lincoln and Mercer counties.
Heritage Hospice is conducting a training session for volunteers from 6:30-9:30 p.m. Monday at the organization's office at 337 W. Broadway in Danville. For more information about the session or the volunteer program, call Wendy Cox, director of volunteers, at 236-2425.
"We have 55 dedicated, wonderful volunteers but we always need more people," said Cox.
"If a person has even just an hour a month, we would welcome their help," Janelle Lane, executive director of the program, said. "There are no requirements or prerequisites, just a willingness to lend a hand to a person who needs a little help around the house as well as companionship."
