Community Hospice Volunteer Receives National Points of Light Award

Ms. Inez Lewis, a longtime Community Hospice Volunteer, has been awarded a Daily Points of Light award for her outstanding service and dedication.

The Daily Points of Light Award, created by the administration of President George H. W. Bush, honors one individual or group each weekday that has made a positive impact in their community.

Ms. Lewis has spent the last 11 years volunteering for Community Hospice in many different capacities including visiting patients, providing support at the Community Hospice Alexander Cohen Hospice House and traveling the Central Valley to educate community members on resources offered by Community Hospice.

“Our dedicated volunteers are the heart of our organization and help us fulfil our mission each day,” said Lupe Perez, Community Hospice’s Director of Volunteers. “We are grateful for the support and dedication Inez has shared with our organization and are elated she received such a prestigious recognition.”
