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.
Drive elderly Blount County residents to medical appointments, grocery stores and other essential places. All riders are ambulatory, no wheelchairs. Using your personal vehicle and self-assigning your rides through an online program, the commitment of 3 hours per month is on your schedule, not ours. Gas reimbursement, training, and friendly staff included. Check with your auto insurer to verify that there is NO additional liability exposure in this program - in fact it's much less than driving your neighbor to the store. SMiles drivers make a huge difference to local seniors. We'd love to have you join our fantastic group of SMilers!
