Peachtree Hospice Poteau is seeking volunteers to take part in their "Tuck In Program."
The volunteers will be making phone calls to patient's homes every Thursday to "Tuck" them in for the weekend, and make certain that they have enough supplies and medication to get them through the weekend. If they need anything, our team will make sure they get it before the weekend.
This is one of the may ways they ensure patients are taken care of, and let them know how very much they are cared about.
If you would like to help, please call (918) 647-7008.
