Ann Jewra, Volunteer Coordinator for Tumbler Ridge Hospice/Palliative Care is giving Doug Foerster, Society President a cheque for $200 on behalf of Telus. The monies are designated for training expenses & an airbed mattress.
Ann is a Telus retiree. It is through the Telus Volunteer Involvement Fund that Telus recognizes the Volunteer efforts of employees/retirees. Once the employee/retiree records 60 hours of personal time through volunteering in community service, they are eligible for a cheque, from Telus, in the amount of $200 payable to the charitable or non profit organization of their choice. This opportunity exists on a yearly basis.
Volunteers from Hospice/Palliative Care are available to visit with terminally ill patients in their homes, to offer needed respite for caregivers.
