We have found that food can do more than just physically nourish. Food can start a conversation, calm a fear and foster a friendship.
The Acts of Kindness volunteer program requires no special skill or professional training. All you need is an open heart, a caring spirit and a willingness to listen. The purpose of our program is to provide emotional support to patients in treatment, and their caregivers, in order to create friendships, ease fears, reduce stress and instill hope.
