Make Thanksgiving Centerpieces/Decorations for Hospice Families
- Volunteer Opportunity posted by Samaritan Healthcare & Hospice
Short-Term (few weeks/months)
5 Eves Drive
You can help brighten our hospice families' table this Thanksgiving by making small centerpieces or decorations that will be delivered along with a basket full of meals and other goodies.
18 years ago one of our teen volunteers came up with the idea to bring fully prepared meals, table items, and a decoration in a nice basket to allow the families more time together on what may be their last holiday, and most likely their last Thanksgiving together, rather than worrying about cooking. This year we will give out 135-140 baskets and 540+ meals complete with cider, napkins, hand-made table runners, candy, cranberry sauce, gravy, etc., and a decoration.
We invite you to participate in this beautiful event by creating the centerpieces or decorations. They can be small and simple and you can make/donate as many or as few as you like.
You could make:
- Mason jars decorated and filled with potpourri
- Small clay pots/tins filled with silk flowers
- Cork Pumpkins (stacked, glued & painted to be a pumpkin shape)
- Pinecone Turkeys
- Hand Turkeys
These are simple crafts and anything you choose to do is greatly appreciated!

Thank you for bringing some joy to Samaritan's patients and families!!
