Adult Volunteer Training on Sept. 29Posted on Sep 11th, 2017 | Perma Link
If you are looking for a way to make a difference in someone’s life and give back to our community, we have the perfect opportunity! Hospice of Randolph County has an urgent need for patient volunteers that provide companionship to hospice patients at their home, in local skilled nursing and assisted living facilities, or at the Randolph Hospice House. These volunteers spend time sitting with patients, reading to them or even watching a favorite TV show together. Lisa Huffman, HRC’s Volunteer Coordinator shared, “Our volunteers provide companionship, emotional support and an extra hand to the patients and families we serve at Hospice of Randolph County. The love and care they give to these patients and families are indispensable.”
Those interested in volunteering in one of these areas are required to attend a special one-day training event on Friday, September 29, in order to learn more about the organization and valuable role of volunteers. The training session will be from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at our Administrative Office located at 416 Vision Drive in Asheboro. Lunch, as well as materials, will be provided free of charge. Pre-registration is required. To pre-register and schedule an interview with Lisa Huffman, please call 336-672-9300 (or) email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Donations Needed for the Hospice Auction & BBQ!Posted on Aug 28th, 2017 | Perma Link
Asheboro, N.C. - Hospice of Randolph County’s signature “Auction & Barbecue” event is still going strong. This year’s fundraiser will take place on November 4th at Southwestern Randolph High School. In preparation for the event, Hospice of Randolph County is asking the community for donations for sale in the auction. Examples of items needed for the auction include fine art, gift certificates & products from local businesses, furniture such as dining room sets, bedroom & living room suites, antiques, collectibles, new electronics, floral arrangements & wreaths, jewelry and more. All goods are welcome, but the organization requests that items be in “new” or gently-used condition and delivered to Hospice of Randolph County, 416 Vision Drive, Asheboro, before September 30, 2017. A silent auction will take place during the BBQ dinner from 3:30pm-6:00 pm. The live auction will begin at 6:45 pm in the gymnasium with FOX-8 Morning News Anchor Cindy Farmer serving as celebrity guest auctioneer to kick off the auction. Also assisting as the announcer of the live auction again this year will be WKXR’s Larry Reid. 2017 marks the 34th Anniversary for Hospice of Randolph County’s specialized and compassionate care that it has provided to thousands of people across Randolph County.
Donations of desserts are also needed for the BBQ dinner. Those wishing to donate dessert items such as cakes, pies, etc., are asked to contact Lisa Huffman before October 10th, by calling (336)672-9300. To help streamline the program, there will be no baked goods sold during the live auction. Instead, there will be a special “Sweet Shoppe Bakery” bake sale set up to showcase and sell these delicious items. People donating items for this booth are asked to pre-register their baked goods.
This year’s attendees will once again enjoy BBQ prepared by the Randolph County Livestock & Poultry Association. Tickets are $10 a plate, which includes barbecue, sides, drink and a dessert.
All money raised from the event will go to benefit the care and support programs for Hospice of Randolph patients, families and caregivers. All donations of auction items are tax-deductible and donors will be acknowledged in publications and media. If you would like to donate items, please contact Lisa Huffman at (336) 672-9300, ext. 259.
