North Little Rock, Ark. – Arkansas Hospice is brightening the holidays for patients facing life-limiting illnesses through its Season of Giving Elf Squad.
“Joining the Elf Squad is a wonderful way to bring joy to our patients,” said Harriet Hawkins, Arkansas Hospice’s Director of Volunteers. “Every year, we have patients who request items like socks, slippers, blankets, large-print puzzle books or personal care items. While these items might seem simple, they can make a big difference for our fellow Arkansans facing life-limiting illnesses.”
There are two ways to join the Arkansas Hospice Elf Squad:
“It’s our goal to deliver a gift to as many patients as possible this holiday season,” Hawkins said. “Whether you prefer to do the shopping yourself or to donate online, your generosity is greatly appreciated.”
As the state’s largest non-profit provider of hospice services, Arkansas Hospice cares for nearly 600 patients in more than 40 counties. The Elf Squad is part of the Arkansas Hospice Volunteer program in conjunction with the Arkansas Hospice Foundation’s Season of Giving, which continues through Dec. 31 to increase awareness and raise funds for the mission of Arkansas Hospice.

I have nothing but the best things to say about Arkansas Hospice. They were so good to my Dad before he passed away. The love and care, compassion they showed to my dad was priceless. The nurses and CNA’s that took care of my Dad are the best and always be the best.
We are just starting our dad’s final journey and Arkansas Hospice has been a blessing. They’ve taught us so much already and provide as much support and comfort to the family as they do my dad. I’m grateful they’ll be walking this final path with us.
I love Arkansas Hospice. Every single employee has a heart of gold and takes the best care of their patients.
I would not hesitate at all to recommend this provider for anyone who is considering hospice care for themselves or for a loved one.
Arkansas Hospice took care of my Mom before she passed. It was my first experience with any hospice and I was amazed. They took such great care of her. They treated her with dignity and respect until the end.
So many thanks for the way your staff treated my very dear friend, Jeff, as he raced toward the finish line. Words can’t express my gratitude for helping us to care for him and keep him comfortable. Top-notch professionalism and immediate responses to requests for assistance.
