Youth Heart of Hospice (YoHOHs) and Heart of Hospice volunteers decorated heart-shaped cookies for their YoHOH Valentine’s Day outing delivering to hospice patients in the Hood River area.
The group sang songs and engaged patients in a conversation and embrace. A student who recently relocated to the area had this perspective:
“I really loved my experience with patients, to exchange a smile, hold a hand, to be warmly welcomed into the lives of patients, perhaps unfamiliar when we arrive, old friends by the time we leave.
“I’m thankful to have had this opportunity. I can’t wait for our St. Patrick’s Day outing.”
