Short Takes continued New Volunteer Outreach Materials Now Online Every year, NHPCO provides members with a range of outreach materials to help them recognize the volunteers in their programs and communities during National Volunteer Week—as well as throughout the year. VOLUNTEERS HELP PATIENTS AND FAMILIES FOCUS ON LIVING A snapshot of the materials you’ll find on the NHPCO website is shown below. Members can use these materials in any way they see fit—the copy or the graphics can be used in other program materials or “as is.” NHPCO’s goal is to make it easy and affordable for members to honor these special individuals. Display Ad/Poster The display ad/poster is available as a PDF, with the Volunteer Week date (as shown on left), or without the date. NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK APRIL 10 – 16, 2011 Hospice and palliative care volunteers work in concert with the rhythms of the season, helping people recall, retell, reflect, remember and celebrate all of the seasons of their lives.
