Volunteering is Rewarding

As a volunteer, you can make a huge difference in another person’s life.

Whether it’s providing support to school children who have experienced the death of a loved one, sharing your special crafting skills and talents for the purpose of raising funds for the Arbor Hospice Home, or providing respite support to caregivers for just a few hours a week; the amazing contributions of volunteers are essential to the work provided by Hemet Hospice Volunteers and Arbor Hospice.

We welcome enthusiastic people who would like to donate their time to help our non-profit organizations work toward meeting their goals.

Volunteers are truly the backbone of all that we do. Volunteering is also a great way to meet new friends and gain great personal satisfaction from knowing that you have made an impact in another person’s life while making a difference in your community.

Volunteer Opportunities

The Craft Group meets every Monday and craft together as a group OR if you prefer, you can be an independent crafter, creating crafts for our boutiques in the comfort of your own home.
