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.
We are looking for volunteers to help with food and hygiene drives at area grocery stores. You would be handing shoppers a "Grocery List" as they enter the store, asking if they would consider making a purchase of an item or two, then dropping those items into the provided cart on their way out.
This is a great opportunity to help women and children receive the food and hygiene items they will be needing during their stay at our domestic violence safe shelters. These women and children have fled their homes in order to escape abuse, and may not have the means to acquire these items otherwise. Please volunteer your time to make sure they have the things they need to be successful and to feel their best!
This can be a 3 hour or a 1 day commitment. It is up to you!
