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 moving specialist acts as an assistant to our driver and enables him to work faster, safer and more efficiently. By supporting this process of getting donated items to the store, onto the floor and sold in a timely manner, you help Habitat’s mission of building safe and affordable homes for hardworking low income families. Because all proceeds from Habitat Store sales benefit building materials for Habitat homes in Charlottesville.
While on the road with our driver, you get to see different parts of the community and meet some of the great people and organizations who donate to the store. This direct contact with our donors enables you to become an ambassador for the Charlottesville Habitat affiliate. We hope you consider joining our passionate team at the store!
