The Alive Hospice organization provides specialized care to persons with limited life expectancy and to their families. For the past 17 years, Alive Hospice (formerly Hospice of Murfreesboro) has conducted a day camp for children who have experienced the loss of a close loved one.
Junior League members may volunteer with Camp Forget-Me-Not as support staff during the camp week. Our members foster a caring and loving atmosphere by helping children in grades K-6 enjoy a fun camp experience that advances the healing process after the death of his or her loved one. JLM members serve as recreation and trained group discussion leaders. Members must complete a 12-hour training course provided by Hospice to participate in the camp.
For more information regarding League involvement in Camp-Forget-Me-Not, please contact our Vice President, Community Relations, Cayce Neal firstname.lastname@example.org.
