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.
Do you enjoy interacting with older adults in our community? Arlington Neighborhood Village provides volunteer support to help people 55 and older age in place. Residents of all ages can volunteer for tasks suited to their own preferences, schedules, and skills-from providing transportation, to assisting with light home repairs, to checking in with a daily phone call. Help with newsletter/website communications, fundraising, and event planning is also needed.
Qualifications vary for each position. Volunteers working one-on-one with members must consent to a background check. Insurance is provided.
