LEXINGTON, N.C. (Jan. 23, 2018) – Hospice of Davidson County is looking for volunteers to join its team.
Volunteers play an important role in the care Hospice of Davidson County provides to the patients and families it serves each year. In 2017, volunteers contributed more than 2,700 hours of service to the agency.
