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.
Foot Clinic is a service offered on the third Saturday and last Monday of every month from 10am-12pm. Homeless people are on their feet much of the time and resolving painful issues is important to them.
The volunteer clinic is coordinated by a podiatrist and two nurses. Other volunteers work under their direction. Guests are encouraged to care for their own feet with the foot baths and tools we provide. They are assisted as the need arises or problems are identified.
Volunteers are involved in keeping clean basins filled with warm water, and emptying and cleaning basins that have been used. Socialization with the guests contributes to the pleasant atmosphere in the clinic.
This is a great opportunity to work with people in Chicago, that really need your support and time. Whether you have experience working in this industry, or are just keen to volunteer, we are keen to hear from you.
