Volunteers are the heart of Heartland. We depend on our hospice volunteers to help us provide the love, respect and care our patients and their families need. At Heartland Hospice serving South Jersey, volunteers sew heart-shaped pillows to give to hospice patients. The tag on the pillow says “Made with Love by Heartland volunteers.” All of the pillows are made out of blue fabric and some have a print of dogs on them for our patients who love pets.
“I wanted to give our hospice patients something that would bring them joy,” said Heartland Hospice volunteer, Gina Preston, “the heart pillows seemed like a natural fit to provide comfort to them and their families.”
