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.
Help a person who is legally blind to manage their paper, mail and official documents. You will be a help and you can make a new friend too!
Do you love to coupon shop, have great organizational skills, a sparkling personality and the interest and desire in making a new friend and help someone at the same time? This great lady who is legally blind but can still read large printed items would love to have someone help her with the fine print of price tags, coupon expiration dates and organizing her stuff! If you can move things from the 'to do' list to the "ta'done" list, this is for you. It doesn't take much to be a good friend and a better volunteer.
