The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Several elementary and pre-schools are seeking volunteers to help out in their classrooms. The Foster Grandparent Program (FGP), is a federally funded program that has successfully placed thousands of Volunteer Grandparents in schools nationwide. Volunteers must be at least 55 and willing to work a minimum of 15 hours/week. Participants receive travel reimbursement, fifty paid vacation/sick days and an hourly stipend - TAX FREE - if their annual income is less than $42,000. It consistently receives overwhelmingly positive reviews from principals, teachers, students, parents and Grandparents alike!
If you are interested in finding out more about this opportunity, feel free to call 388-7044.
