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.
Who doesn't feel loved by receiving a hand-made gift. Create knitted, crocheted, or tied fleece items for hospice patients--to keep them warm and bring them comfort, not to mention brighten their days!
Lap blankets and comfort/prayer shawls are most appreciated by our patients as well as bereaved family members--use your creativity to design something special. Shawls and blankets are delivered to hospice patients by volunteers and staff. Patients treasure hand-made items and feel special that someone cared enough to think of them. This is an excellent project to work on alone or with other ladies from a social or church group. Please consider providing comfort and warming a patients' body and soul with this special gift.
