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.
You can make a difference in someone's life by volunteering your time to share with a person who would like to spend time with you. Beacon Hospice volunteers visit patients in a variety of settings, giving family members the gift of respite, engaging patients in activities such as reading, conversations, sharing music or poetry. Volunteers provide a calm, reassuring, presence. We provide comfort and dignity to those with life-limiting illnesses in a supportive environment. We offer a required 16 hr training that will lay the foundation of dignity and support as you visit your patients. Join our Care Team, and begin a journey of giving back.
