No, Talbot Hospice volunteers need to receive 16 hours of training before they can serve Talbot Hospice. The volunteers that put together the Festival of Trees work under a separate 501(c)(3) called The Friends of Hospice. These volunteers start planning in February for the festival which is held each year in November. The Festival of Trees has a board of directors and a well established corps of committees which oversee every aspect of this wonderful festival. There are over 850 volunteers who bring the magic to each year. You can volunteer for both Talbot Hospice and the Friends of Hospice. For more information please visit the Festival of Trees tab under our News and Events or go to www.festival-of-trees.org the festival of trees site.
