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.
Are you a social worker looking for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of persons touched by cancer? The American Cancer Society HopeClub is looking for social workers interested in volunteering to lead a support group of survivors, one for friends and families, and for children. Cancer is a devastating disease and these groups make possible the peer support process and provide the opportunity to develop healthy coping skills and strategies for self-advocacy. For more information about HopeClub, visit www.cancer.org/hopeclub. To discuss this opportunity, call Joni at 518-220-6964 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
