Bringing smiles through volunteering

“I volunteer to make someone smile who may not have many reasons to do so.”

When Carole Christensen retired, she was motivated by her daughter, a hospice nurse, to fill her newly acquired “free time” with volunteering. 

“I am busier than I was when I was working!” Carole says. 

Since she began as a hospice volunteer, she’s been a companion to nine hospice patients.

“Volunteering has given me the opportunity to make new friends and to meet people I never would’ve met otherwise,” Carole says. 

One of her favorite things to do is to sing with the people she visits.
