Hospice of San Luis Obispo County Light Up a Life 2018 - Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunities

During our Light Up A Life season, Hospice SLO County hosts eight remembrance ceremonies throughout San Luis Obispo county and there are many opportunities to get involved.

During November, volunteers may assist us with compiling the list of names for each ceremony. Creating this master list is the most important part of Light Up A Life, as it is used to create the precious remembrance books for each ceremony. To assist in November, volunteers should be comfortable entering data in a basic Excel spreadsheet.

We are also in need of volunteers to assist staff at the Remembrance Ceremonies in December. Your warm and caring presence will set the tone for the remembrance ceremony, as you greet guests, pass out candles, and help us with light set-up. Please view the ceremony schedule below.
