Lower Cape Fear Hospice is looking for volunteers to help with its Meals of Love program at Angel House Hospice Care Center.
Volunteers prepare meals that are shared by families visiting loved ones at the inpatient hospice care center at 206 Warrior Trail Road in Whiteville. Meals of Love allow families to concentrate on spending time with their loved ones and take needed breaks without having to leave the hospice care center.
“Home-cooked meals offer comfort to families dealing with a loved one’s life-limiting illness. Many of them express their gratitude at having access to snacks and meals,” Lisa Clark, community outreach coordinator for Columbus and Bladen counties, said. “Having food available in the hospice care center’s family kitchen allows families to spend as much time as possible with their loved ones.”
The welcoming setting of the kitchen allows families access to needed nourishment and the opportunity to interact and gain support from other families going through the same experience.
“We rely on individuals and groups to volunteer to help with the Meals of Love program. Their kindness means a great deal to us and the families we serve,” Clark said.
Lower Cape Fear Hospice is a nonprofit agency that provides healthcare and comfort to people with advanced illnesses; support and counseling to families; and education in Bladen, Brunswick, Columbus, New Hanover, Onslow and Pender counties in North Carolina, and Horry County in South Carolina.
