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.
MSPCA-Animal Adoption Center350 South Huntington Ave.Jamaica Plain, MA02130
The MSPCA offers many opportunities for children and teens to learn about what we do and to contribute to our mission. Programs include Birthday Parties, Tours, School Visits, School Break programs and the Little Bookworms story time.
Parties are held the second Saturday of each month - volunteers are needed from 2:30-5:30pm to set up the space, help plan and facilitate games, activities and crafts. Some animal handling is involved.
Tours and School Visits are scheduled on request, with tours occurring any day of the week and school visits typically occurring Mon-Fri during the school day.
Little Bookworms is a weekly program that meets on TUESDAY MORNINGS - help is needed from 9:15-11:15am - and provides animal related activities for toddlers. Volunteers help set the space up for the program, check people in, show animals to the children, read stories, sing fun songs and play games. Volunteers need to be able bodied enough to help move some chairs and navigate around lots of toddlers.
If you have a ready smile and a positive attitude we would love your help with any of these programs!
