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.
Many seniors lose their ability to drive as they age. Some have no one to drive them to their doctor appointments.
Some have family members who have trouble getting time off from work to take them to doctor appointments.
Some pay exorbitant fees to acquaintances to drive them to their appointments. Others lack the money to pay these fees or the high costs of cab fares.
By donating a few hours of your time once a month as part of a caring team, you could help these seniors get to their doctors and maintain their health and their quality of life and provide them with some caring, human contact. We need 4 to 10 people to do 4-8 rides one day a month.
Contact us today and be a part of a great service for so many seniors.
