Volunteers of the Week

New Hope Presbyterian Church volunteers are our volunteers of the week!

Volunteers from New Hope Presbyterian Church, a neighbor to Preble High School, have dedicated one day a month during the school year to provide a pizza lunch, desserts, and drinks to the students at the school. During these events, more than 20 volunteers gather to set up, pick up pizzas every 30 minutes for more than three hours, meet at tables with the students, and then clean up to get ready for a new round of students that come the next lunch hour. In addition to food, this effort brings much-needed relational and social connection that many teenagers in our community lack. Many of these volunteers are retirees, so they bring not only a listening ear, but they provide a bridge in the generational gap. They have provided pizza and purpose for over 10,000 students over the course of this outreach!

This group of volunteers has faithfully served generations of Preble students and has invited Young Life Green Bay to serve alongside them. Staff at Young Life have been inspired at how this group truly cares for the teenagers they are serving, and they have been able to invite kids to Young Life to continue building relationships outside of a lunch hour and provide safe spaces for teenagers to grow. The New Hope volunteer group has found ways to meet and mentor the next generation instead of sitting back and complaining about them. They saw a need and found a creative way to step into the world of teenagers and make a difference with their time, talent, and treasure. Thank you, New Hope volunteers, for all you do to serve and connect with these young people!

Friendly Hospice Visitors

Volunteers are the HEART of hospice. Aurora Home Hospice is looking for kind, caring individuals to provide companionship to their patients in end-of-life care. Patients are in care facilities and homes throughout the Green Bay area, so there is likely a person in need conveniently close to you. A visit brightens their day and lightens your heart.

As a hospice visit volunteer you may:

  • Provide active listening and a caring presence
  • Read a book or listen to their favorite music
  • Play games or take walks as they are able
  • Participate in life review or just hear their stories
  • Be present while a caregiver takes a break
  • Remember special days
  • Laugh with them
  • Or just hold their hand while they rest

Training is provided so you can be confident and comfortable in doing an excellent job as a companion volunteer. No patient cares are involved. You will develop soft social skills such as active listening and empathetic companionship in a health care setting. This can reflect well on a resume.

Safety is the top priority, so a background check and health history will need to be completed. All Aurora employees, including volunteers, are required to be vaccinated for flu during flu season. If you are interested in doing something that will give back and be a heart-expanding experience, contact Lexi below. Shifts: Volunteers typically visit with a patient once a week for 1-2 hours. Scheduling is flexible. Minimum age: 18.
