WISCONSIN RAPIDS – United Way of South Wood & Adams Counties’ Volunteer Center promotes the volunteer needs of local non-profit organizations in both south Wood and Adams Counties.
Friendly Visitors- Are you looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity? Friendly Visitor volunteers spend time with individuals receiving Heartland Hospice services in Wisconsin Rapids and surrounding communities. Activities include reading to patients, playing cards, going on walks, assisting with activities, or reminiscing about days gone by. Visit schedule is set by the volunteer and is very flexible. Please contact our office today at 715-344-4541 for more information on how to become a part of our team today.
Do you enjoy music? Share your musical talents with our hospice patients. If you play an instrument or enjoy singing, share your abilities with a hospice patient that enjoys music and would benefit from additional socialization. Opportunities are available in Wisconsin Rapids, Nekoosa, Friendship, Adams, and surrounding communities. Ongoing visits with patients are needed, as well as one-time musical events such as memorial services.
