Baking Up Nice Surprises : B.U.N.S.
B.U.N.S. is an event that is made completely possible by hospice volunteers. Three times a year white gift bags (decorated by a volunteer) filled with goodies (made by volunteers) are delivered (by volunteers) to our patients and newly bereaved families. The delivery routes are put together by a volunteer, phone calls are made by volunteers and the bags are packed by volunteers. These bags are so appreciated by their recipients.
