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.
Imagine living in an environment where you have limited access to family and friends. Although there are many fun and educational activities to keep our residents busy, sometimes individuals just want that human touch with others. Volunteers are needed to provide companionship to senior residents by chatting, reading books and newspapers, discussing current events. If you want to make a difference in the lives of senior residents, then you will find this to be a rewarding opportunity. Please contact the Volunteer Office at 216-360-9080 or email at email@example.com.
Volunteers should have good interpersonal skills with an ability to relate to a diverse population with an ability to listen and speak with an understandable voice. Requirements to volunteer include: completion of an application, 2 written references, a two-step TB screening, and a 90 orientation.
