Volunteers selflessly give of their time and talent to further VNA of Ohio Hospice’s primary goal – enhancing quality of life for our patients and their loved ones by providing support during a challenging time.

VNA of Ohio is especially grateful to our core group of volunteers who, for nearly 20 years, have donated hand-crafted cards to patients and their families. These volunteers delicately craft hand-made cards with pressed flowers and personalize the cards with a unique, lovely design. You can also purchase these cards at the Botanical Gardens, Holden Arboretum, Ginko Gallery & Studio Ltd Oberlin and Bay Arts

We are always thrilled to add new members to our volunteer family. However you choose to help, the outcome is the same — people's lives will be enriched from your support.
