VHOCC to host online, in-person volunteer orientations

Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County (VHOCC) is continuing its orientations for volunteers, with one online and one in-person session this month.

VHOCC, a local nonprofit that serves communities from Joyce to Diamond Point, hosts the online community orientation, open to anyone wanting to learn more about hospice or curious about volunteering, from 11 a.m.-noon on Thursday, Aug. 6.

The link to connect will be sent to those who call 360-452-1511 with an email address by noon on Tuesday, Aug. 4.

Meeting “attendees” will need a computer with camera, microphone and speakers, or a tablet or smart phone.

On Friday, Aug. 7, there will be an in-person orientation from 10-11 a.m. at 829 E. Eighth St., Port Angeles. No registration is necessary, but all attendees must wear a mask.

VHOCC continually monitors and follows COVID-19 guidelines from the CDC, State of Washington, and Clallam County. VHOCC continually monitors and follows county, state and federal guidelines, and volunteer activities have been adjusted according. However, there is still a need for equipment delivery drivers and helpers in Sequim and Port Angeles and Sequim; a VHOCC vehicle is provided.

There is also a need for front desk volunteers at the Port Angeles office to answer phones and respond to requests from the community (training is provided).
