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.
