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.
The American Cancer Society's Road to Recovery program provides transportation to and from treatment for cancer patients who do not have a ride or are unable to drive themselves. Volunteer drivers donate their time and the use of their cars so that patients can receive the life-saving treatments they need.
We are in need of a Road to Recovery Volunteer Coordinator in Miami-Dade County, FL. As a Road Coordinator, you will help schedule rides for cancer patients. All it takes is 3-4 hours a week of your time, organization, and communication skills to make a major impact on the well-being of cancer patients in your community.
For more information about becoming a Road to Recovery Volunteer Coordinator, please call 1.877.901.2862 or email Florida.Road@cancer.org.
