The following comes to us from Susan Levine, Executive Director of Hospice of the Valley:

Springtime inspires renewal. Here are some opportunities at Hospice of the Valley to help renew others by volunteering, to renew yourself by playing in a benefit golf tournament, and to renew the environment by taking your unneeded documents to a paper-shredding fundraiser.

Volunteers needed for expanding programs

As Hospice of the Valley continues to grow and offer more diversified services, we have more opportunities for volunteers to make a difference in their community. Some of our newer programs in need of volunteers include our Hispanic Community Program, the Kivel-HOV Jewish Hospice Partnership, the HOV Salutes veteran recognition program, and our Outreach program which provides assistance to adults and children with serious and chronic illnesses. For more information about these and other opportunities, click here.

Terracon golf tournament to benefit HOV

Calling all golfers ... join us at Terracon's 6th Annual Golf Benefit on Friday, May 6 taking place at the beautiful Raven Golf Club at South Mountain, rated by Golf Digest as one of the "Best Places to Play." Entry fee for a foursome is $575 or $150 for individual golfers. All proceeds will benefit Hospice of the Valley. For more information and to register, click here.

HOV to benefit from paper shredding fundraiser

Gather up your old paperwork to shred! Hospice of the Valley will benefit from a paper shredding event taking place 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday, April 22, at 21628 N. 2nd Ave. near Deer Valley Road. The cost is $5 for each box or bag recycled. For every $5 received, $3 will be donated to HOV for patient care and community programming. Recycling will be provided by ABCO Shredding Services. For questions about the event, call 602-943-9676.

Journey of grief recovery shared in magazine article

Finding a safe, supportive environment where he could be himself was the first milestone of Lloyd Shipe's healing journey after his partner of 33 years died. That environment was HOV's Healing Rainbows grief support group, which serves the LGBT community. Shipe's journey with HOV is featured in the March 17th edition of ECHO magazine.

Whether it's a gesture of kindness or an act of giving, thank you for taking the time to care.
