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.
Volunteers are needed to assist with feeding and caring for the animals, mowing, trimming, and fencing around the farm. Cleaning the barn, brushing the cows, and improving pasture land are some other tasks that we're constantly engaged in. This is a great opportunity if you love working with animals and want to learn more about animal care!
We also have a lot of construction projects going on all the time. While all are welcome to come and help, we can especially use those with construction experience or those who are interested in learning a bit about construction.
Free food and lodging are provided to all those who are interested in staying at the farm and helping around the sanctuary. Volunteers can also be provided with a small stipend for living expenses.
