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.
Peppermint clears the mind, removes toxins from the body and relieves pain, isn't that amazing. You can be a peppermint life saver to a person with blindness who needs occasional rides. You can clear her mind, take her to dialysis to clear her body and relieve her worries. If you can make a once a week trip to a doctor appointment, drop her off at dialysis or assist in any way, this is for you. It is a low impact way to try out a volunteer opportunity with just an hour or two per week.
