Hospice Circle of Love Spring Book Sale to Take Place April 7th and 8th
Area book lovers have been filling their shelves with works found at the Hospice Circle of Love Book Sale for almost 30 years, now. “This event is a great place to pick up some books by your favorite authors without spending very much,” commented event organizer Julie Nelson. This year’s spring sale will take place Friday, April 7th from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM and Saturday, April 8th from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM in the metal building just north of Hospice Circle of Love, located at 314 South Third in Enid.
Thousands of books will be available in a variety of categories including: mysteries, romance novels, fiction stories, self-help and how-to books, biographies, children’s books, westerns, cookbooks, religious works and more. All hardback books will be just $1.00 and paperbacks will be just .50 cents.
“This will be the 29th year for our book sale. We appreciate the community’s support in donating and purchasing books to make the event a success each time,” commented Nelson.
Hospice Circle of Love is a not-for-profit organization caring for terminally ill patients in the home or nursing home. A team of caregivers including nurses, aides, chaplains, social workers and volunteers provides physical, emotional and spiritual support to help patients and families make every day count. Proceeds from the book sale will benefit hospice patients.
Hospice Circle of Love Seeking Volunteers
Hospice Circle of Love is looking for new volunteers to help make a difference in the lives of patients and their families. Potential volunteers are invited to join the team by taking a volunteer training course, scheduled for February 9th & 16th from 2 to 5 each day at the Circle of Love office, 314 S. Third in Enid.
Hospice Circle of Love volunteers provide respite for caregivers and companionship to patients. In addition, they assist with the agency’s annual fundraisers, such as book sales, Tree of Life and a clay shoot. They also work in the office, which might include putting together packets for hospice intakes, filing or answering phones during a staff meeting.
In addition, volunteers assist the agency by helping with annual flu clinics, working health fair booths, or helping to maintain the organization’s Veteran’s Memorial Garden.
“There are many ways our volunteers help out and each one is important,” commented Volunteer Coordinator Julie Nelson. “Volunteers choose which areas they are most interested in and that’s where they are placed.”
Anyone who is interested in being a volunteer can call Julie at 580-234-2273
