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 need your help to keep our parks and streams clean! You can either join an already planned park cleanup (go to our website www.ParksVolunteers.org to see a list) or organize your own!
Organizing and holding a cleanup event is easy and fun and is a great way to get outdoors and help your local environment. We will work with your existing group or help you recruit one and we'll work with you to find a conveniently located project site.
We'll need to know five things in order to get your cleanup organized:
1) The date you would like to do a cleanup 2) Where you would like to do the cleanup (a specific location is great but it's fine to have a general area or even no preference) 3) The estimated size of your group 4) How long you would like the project to be 5) If you would like to make this a private cleanup, or are looking for additional volunteers.
Once we have a plan your group will be provided with gloves and trash bags, a special volunteer permit letter, safety guidelines, and park staff & park police will be notified about the cleanup and haul away the trash afterwards.
