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.
Like working with kids? Want to volunteer but can't commit to a set schedule? The San Mateo County History Museum has a great volunteer opportunity for you!
Five or six times a year we hold family craft days based on a theme (Victorian Days, Maritime Day, Holiday Traditions from Around the World). We need volunteers to help us man the craft tables. You don't have to have artistic talent--the crafts are geared towards elementary school children so they are very easy to learn (directions are provided).
Craft days are usually held on Saturdays, however there are occasional Sunday events. You may choose which events you'd like to volunteer for, and we only require a 2 hr shift minimum per event.
