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.
The American Cancer Society Road To Recovery program provides transportation for cancer patients to and from cancer-related medical appointments. For this program to be successful, we need both volunteer drivers and coordinators.
The American Cancer Society needs a Road To Recovery volunteer coordinator.
Coordinators are critical to the Road To Recovery program. They receive ride requests from ACS and share those requests with local volunteer drivers. Coordinators also notify ACS on the status of each ride request. In addition, coordinators help with local volunteer recruitment, program promotion, and volunteer recognition.
