Compassion Corps seeks volunteers for support program


WALLA WALLA -- Compassion Corps is starting its second year and looking for more volunteers for a support program.

The program provides a compassionate presence for veterans with serious illnesses or advanced chronic diseases. Volunteers offer companionship, errand running and respite to veterans and their families. Volunteers are matched with clients after successfully completing a 20-hour training in palliative care.

Two informational meetings are planned: Aug. 8 and Aug. 30, 7-8:30 p.m. Both sessions will be in the Theater in Bldg. 78 at the Jonathan M. Wainwright VA Medical Center. Meeting attendees will be under no obligation to join the Compassion Corps.

For more information call Catherine Zimmerman at 525-5200, ext. 26270.
