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.
Would you like to put a smile on someone's face, simply by stopping by to say hi? At Caris, our patients love our volunteers. There are 3 types of volunteer opportunities: PATIENT CARE, ADMINISTRATIVE, AND SPECIAL PROJECT. Patient care volunteers visit with patients and can provide companionship, read to the patient, say a prayer, or just provide company. Administrative volunteers can help in the office by filling papers, answering phones or other simple tasks. Special project volunteers can make things for our patients, such as: sewing, baking cookies, making neck pillows, or other projects. WHY NOT MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONE'S LIFE?
