Why I volunteer by Vicki Shafer

Hospice Threshold Singers has been a saving grace in my life. My late husband received amazing care from a Hospice organization 6 years ago.  After his passing, I wanted to get involved in the Hospice community in some way to give back what had been given to us during his last 6 months.  When I read an ad for Hospice Threshold Singers in San Luis Obispo not far from my house, I was ecstatic.  To sing with a group of singers devoted to easing the end of life for others-what could be better.  The group continues to grow under Ruth Baile’s compassionate, encouraging, committed leadership giving all of us a chance to sing at the bedside of people and pets on the threshold of their lives.  I am deeply grateful for this opportunity not only for my own healing, but for the chance to give the gift of song to others in their last months or weeks.
