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.
FRIENDSHIPWORKS: Matching Volunteers with Elders since 1984
Help Boston Elderly Access Health Care
Help Boston Elderly Get the Health Care They Need
FriendshipWorks is looking for "Medical Escort" volunteers to accompany isolated seniors and to and from the doctor's office, offering an arm to lean on and assistance with navigating the hospital. Many seniors have trouble getting to the doctor or are nervous going alone - YOU can be the answer to this problem!
This is a flexible opportunity and we need volunteers with or without cars. We are looking for retired or student volunteers for the Medical Escort program as many of our requests are for daytime doctor's appointments.
