Ponte Vedra High School senior Livi Bowers has been dedicating her time volunteering at Community Hospice and Palliate Care.

Bowers is Present of the Community PedsCare Teen Advisory Board, and she also paints portraits of pets as part of the Creative HeARTs program.

“Growing up, my family was very involved with Halloween Doors & More, and I could not wait until I was old enough to become a volunteer for Community Hospice,” Bowers said.

Bowers has worked hard as an ambassador to raise awareness and funds for the Community PedsCare program, and she very much enjoys interacting with hospice patients through art therapy.

Next year, Livi will be attending Tulane University, but the Florida native plans to continue volunteering at Community Hospice during her college breaks.

“Livi has been a wonderful volunteer for us. She is a gifted artist with a beautiful soul,” said Betsy Miller, Volunteer Coordinator, Community Hospice & Palliative Care, in a release.
