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.
Want to make a difference in the lives of those dealing with serious illness? Hospice volunteers are needed for patient visits, and office volunteers. Volunteers commit to a minimum of one hour a month, and to the hours that are most convient for them to visit. Most visits are made in a nursing home setting. Volunteers add purpose to the lives of terminially ill patients and their families. No special skills needed, we will train you free of charge.
Please, if you have had a death in the last year, wait a minimun of 1 year before volunteering to allow yourself to heal and be ready to assist others.
