Hospice House Greeters Honored with Spirit of NH Award for Volunteer Service
Thirty-four volunteers from Hospice House were recently honored by Volunteer NH with the 2023 Spirit of New Hampshire Award for volunteer service. The Hospice House Greeters were recognized at the annual Spirit of NH event at the Bank of NH Stage in Concord on October 23.
In the past year alone, the Hospice House Greeters volunteered 977 hours of service, collectively. As greeters, they welcome families and visitors to Hospice House, but also support volunteer bereavement coordinators with administrative tasks, and do numerous other little things to help ensure that Hospice House is a welcoming and comfortable place for all.
“These dedicated volunteers are truly the face of Hospice House,” said Granite VNA Volunteer Coordinator, Lisa Challender, MBA, MSW. “Their positive impact on patients’ and families’ experiences at Hospice House cannot be overstated – they create a space where people who are going through an often difficult and emotional time feel welcome, supported and cared-for. We are so grateful for all that they do for our patients and their families and the Hospice House team.”
Established in 2003 as a way to honor those who go above and beyond, the Spirit of New Hampshire Award recognizes individual volunteers or volunteer groups who provide services that strengthen communities and improve the lives of New Hampshire residents
