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.
Penn's Village is a nonprofit organization located in central Philadelphia, serving older adults who wish to remain in their homes as they age. Oftentimes, staying in one's own home while growing older means having some outside assistance making it to doctor's appointments, grocery shopping, and even social events. Penn's Village volunteer drivers help older adults in Center City get to the places they need to go.
Volunteer drivers at our organization transport older adults from their homes to appointments, shopping trips, and on errand runs several days per week. You may drive as much or as little as you desire.
Penn's Village would love to have you as a part of our team! For more information, please visit pennsvillage.org to find out more about this organization and volunteer opportunities. Thank you.
