Volunteers needed for Camp Healing Heart

Posted: Updated:

MONTICELLO - Carle Hospice officials say they are seeking volunteers to help provide support to children who are dealing with grief during Camp Healing Heart on September 25.

Officials say Camp Healing Heart will be held at the University of Illinois 4-H Memorial Camp near Monticello, and that registration is open to children ages five through 17 who are dealing with grief related to the loss of a loved one.  During the camp, volunteers work with children to help them learn, play, and remember.

Officials also say about 100 volunteers are needed to make the camp successful, and that less than half have signed up this year.  Volunteers are asked to apply by September 18, with training being held the Friday before the event.

For more information, or to apply to be a volunteer, call (217) 383-3151 or visit http://carle.org/services/home-services/hospice.aspx.
