• Hospice of S.B. is looking for individuals to volunteer for its I Have a Friend mentor program. Mentor volunteers are adults who have experienced the loss or death of a loved one as a child. The program will match volunteers with children who have encountered similar circumstances, at which point mentors will help children cope with and grow from said losses. The program aims to have children understand that not only are they normal, but they can flourish into thriving, successful beings. Call 563-8820.
