These volunteers may engage in a variety of special projects based on their own gifts and done during a time that best fits their personal schedule. There are all kinds of projects that an affiliate InCare Hospice volunteer might engage in, but below are some possible ideas: Knitting blankets or scarves Sewing pillows, bibs, or memory bears Creating bookmarks, tape recordings, or prayer shawls Making Easter Baskets or May Day Baskets or other holiday specific gifts for patients Offering to do light yard work at a patients house You think of an idea and bring it to us---and we'll let you know if it will work!
