Hospice of the valleyHospice of the Valley is recruiting volunteers to support military families

A national program that matches people in communities across the country with veterans who need support is now available in the Phoenix area through Hospice of the Valley.

Volunteers who join the ASU-based program, called Legacy Corps for Veterans and Military Families, receive special training in caregiving support from Hospice of the Valley. They provide companionship to patients, socialization and in-home respite care that allows caregivers to take a much-needed break. In return, Legacy Corps volunteers receive a monthly allowance and a college tuition award after a year of service. Those who are 55 or older can pass this award to a child or grandchild.

If you would love the opportunity to enrich the lives of veteran patients and their families, please contact Hospice of the Valley at (480) 844-5486 or legacycorps@hov.org. To learn more about the Legacy Corps program and apply, visit hov.org/volunteer/Legacy-Corps.

Members of our community volunteer for several reasons.  Some volunteer because they want to make a difference and support the programs sponsored by the Carefree Kiwanis Club which supports children in the North Scottsdale / Carefree / Cave Creek area.   Others volunteer looking to make new friends and create a sense of belonging.

Marketplace Volunteers do not have to be Kiwanis Club Members to volunteer at the Marketplace.  About a third of the 19,000 yearly volunteer hours donated are by Kiwanis Club Members.  We encourage Volunteers to work at the Marketplace as often as they like.  We are very flexible and accommodating to everyone!

Volunteers are needed during our business hours, Tues – Sat, 9 am -4 pm.  Generally, volunteers will work a 4 hour morning or afternoon shift, yet we welcome whatever amount of time you can give.

Several Volunteer Appreciation Parties are held throughout the year for recognition of Volunteer efforts.  Volunteers are encouraged to attend our parties and to bring a friend or family member.  Most Appreciation Parties are held at the Marketplace and are a lot of fun and a great place to make another new friend!

Answer the Foothills Caring Corps Call for Volunteers to Promote Elderly Independence

Foothills Caring Corps has issued an immediate call for volunteers to help in their mission to promote independence and enhance the quality of life of elderly residents in the Northeast Valley. The 501(c)3 based in Carefree, Arizona loses a significant number of volunteers when they return to their part-time homes during the summer. Foothills Caring Corps needs additional recruits to not only fill the seasonal gap but also to help with the community’s growing need for senior services.

Potential volunteers can attend a monthly orientation on the second Thursday of each month from 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at the Caring Corps offices, 7275 E. Easy Street, Suite B103/104 in Carefree.

With numerous ways to volunteer, the Foothills Caring Corps has the greatest need for drivers in their van transportation programs. Through its volunteer force, the nonprofit agency provides a variety of invaluable services including medical and van transportation, friendly visits, mobile meals, shopping assistance and more.

Based on a volunteers’ schedule, favorite things to do and skill set, the Foothills Caring Corps staff will find the perfect way to serve. Current Foothills Caring Corps volunteers report a flexible and highly rewarding experience easy to fit into a busy schedule because of multiple ways to and assist.

  • “Some of my best new friends are folks I’ve met while volunteering at Foothills Caring Corps. This is an exceptional group of happy and talented people!”
  • “I feel I’m making a difference.”
  • “To help others regain or keep their independence is gratifying.”
  • “They thank me when actually I always thank them. It’s a grand gift to me that I get to help them!”
