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.
We hold many small events (games, crafts, cooking) for teens and adults (usually around 10 people total). Small events are opportunities for adults and teens to have fun and get to know each other in a smaller setting than our typical DCFYI events. Most small events are held in someone's home or other setting an individual has access to and makes available to us. Do you have space and would you host a small event for us?
Example idea: Hosting a "Pamper Party" - an opportunity for some teens and adults to learn about skin care and entrepreneurship and have some fun. The host would provide space in their home (dining room table maybe) for the activity and also provide refreshments.
