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.
DONATE DINNERS FOR YOUTH of Bayshore Christian Ministries' spiritual mentoring programs for middle school or high school students in East Palo Alto. Gatherings for youth and mentors begin by having dinner together on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Dinners need to be delivered by 6:15 pm, and donors are invited to serve the meal and enjoy it with the group.
There's flexibility: Volunteers can
* serve as individuals, with friends, or as a family * prepare or purchase the meals * either drop off the dinner or stay to serve it * donate dinner as a "one-off" or on a regular basis -- you can choose how often and how many times to donate.
