Help Recruit With Volunteer Cards


CATEGORY: Volunteers
​How many times have we found ourselves in line at the grocery store, waiting for an appointment at the salon or waiting at a doctor’s office when we strike up a conversation with a stranger about various meaningless topics such as the weather, how our sports teams are doing or politics? Sometimes in the course of these conversations, we can discover that there are really great people out there and we may think “Wow—he seems like a really nice person and he did mention that he is recently retired and looking for something new to get involved in…” but then his name—or yours—is called and we leave it at that, say our goodbyes and we’re out the door back on our respective paths…
Sometimes you realize that you have just let gold slip through your fingers by not connecting with this person who might have a lot to offer the patients and families served by Hospice of the Western Reserve. You didn’t have a pen or paper and you didn’t have any literature to offer this possible new volunteer so you might have felt out of place “recruiting” him.   

This is when volunteer business card comes in handy. Keep a few in your wallet and you’ll have them available for when you come across people who strike you as being part of the future of our agency.  

Hospice of the Western Reserve knows how very valuable our volunteer staff members are and are always in need of more of them. The agency serves a large population geographically and want to be able to provide all that we can for our patients and we are able to do so much more because of our volunteers.  

Anyone who is interested in receiving some cards can contact Nikki Matala. Let’s not offer good people the opportunity to volunteer; if you see someone out there whom you think would be great at the work that we do, hand them a card.  Once that person contacts the Volunteer Team, the rest will be handled.  

Any questions may be directed to Nikki at or 216-298-0308.
