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.
We are seeking veterans to visit with our hospice patients who are veterans. The goal of this program is to honor people for their service and to create opportunities to share experiences. Vet to Vet volunteers may assist with:
Record stories for the Veteran History Project
Bring recognition gifts on holidays
Assist families in applying for a presidential memorial certificate
Patients are located in their private home and facilities throughout the Twin Cities (south) metro area. You will be strategically matched with patients close to your home, and you get to choose which patients you want to visit. The time you spend volunteering each week is flexible and will be scheduled directly with patients and/or caregivers.
No medical experience is necessary. Health screening, background check, and training provided at no cost to you.
