Volunteer Transformations!

Inspired by the butterflies that transform in their lifecycles from caterpillar to cocoon to butterfly, volunteers can also be transformed by their service in hospice palliative care. Volunteers are touched, clients’ lives are impacted and there is a ripple effect of kindness.
