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.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
Behind this SUV is an entire preschool class and not a single one of these children can be seen by the driver. Every week in the US 50 children are backed over because they can't be seen behind a vehicle. Help KidsAndCars.org educate drivers about the dangers of the large blindzone that exists behind ALL vehicles.
Join our team to put an end to preventable deaths and injuries of innocent children in and around vehicles. Contribute by helping enter data into our unique database which includes the following types of incidents;
Children struck by vehicles in parking lots, driveways, alleys, or anywhere that is off the road (i.e. nontraffic incidents)
Children left alone inside vehicles
Children left alone inside vehicles that are stolen
Children knocking vehicles into gear

Volunteers pull data from news articles provided by KidsAndCars.org and enter information into an Excel spread sheet using our database key as a guide to enter the required information. Volunteers may also be asked to do some simple searches via the internet for additional information on cases.
We are easy going and flexible. Volunteers decide how much time they are able to invest. Attention to detail and experience with data entry are desired. We look forward to working with you and helping save lives!
