Hospice of East Texas

Volunteers give the gift of time! The Hospice of East Texas has opened a Thrift Shop in Jacksonville and we have wonderful volunteer opportunities in the new shop. In addition, caring volunteers are needed in the Longview area. Our volunteers tell us, “Being a hospice volunteer is the most rewarding work they’ve ever done”.

Heart to Heart Hospice

Hospice volunteers are truly compassionate people. They generously give their time to patients who are at the ends of their lives and/or also help hospice organizations run smoothly by completing administrative tasks. Hospice volunteers play many different roles and are an important part of every hospice organization. For more information on how YOU can make a difference, contact Michelle Miller at 903-593-6619
