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.
Bring a smile to someone who needs you. Volunteer for hospice and find out what joy you can bring to someone's life. Whether you want to read, play cards, scrapbook, talk or pray or just watch TV. Your presence in the life of one of our wonderful patients will also bring you a meaningful experience.
We will provide you a full orientation before being with a patient. The majority of our patients are elderly, if you love to talk to seniors and love hearing their stories, please consider joining our team today.
Not sure if you want to sit with a hospice patient but you'd like to help? Plan to be creative on our patients' behalf: make cards, create "fidget" blankets/pads for our Alzheimers patients. Use your talent and creativity to make gifts that will be appreciated by those who might be bed bound and bored.
