Volunteer Spotlight: Tiffany Nunies
Posted on November 4, 2019
Tiffany Nunies loves to make people smile. As an Islands Hospice volunteer, she gets to do just that — bringing a bit of brightness to the lives of the patients and families she interacts with.
A student by day, she decided to spend some of her free time volunteering at Islands Hospice because “it was a great opportunity to be able to help others.”
She started as a volunteer in the office, stuffing envelopes and helping with other administrative tasks, and recently began visiting patients as well.
The simple act of doing something small for others makes her actions well worth the effort. Her favorite part of being a volunteer is “being able to know that what I did brought a smile to someone’s face,” she said.
During her two years as a volunteer, Tiffany has been a part of many special moments at Islands Hospice. One of her favorite memories is attending a patient’s birthday party. “I was able to enjoy cake and ice cream with the other patients and listen to the many songs played,” she recalled. “It was very heartwarming because just this one little party was able to make not only the birthday girl happy, but everyone around her.”
