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.
Make a difference in the life of home-bound seniors by being the weekly Meals on Wheels delivery volunteer who brings them a nutritious hot or frozen lunch. Using your own car, you pick up meals at the Deupree House, 3939 Erie Avenue, Hyde Park, between 10:30-10:45 a.m. New routes available in Oakley, Norwood, Hyde Park, Madisonville, Mariemont and Madeira, and take only 60-90 minutes, one day a week Tuesday through Friday. Unless you prefer to be an alternate driver, you have the same route every week and can get to know the residents. A minimum 6-month commitment is requested, and a background check and fingerprinting are required. This is very rewarding and so needed.
