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.
A local young adult needs a mentor for community inclusion activities.
He loves music and adapted computers, but due to blindness he cannot drive so he has a difficult time accessing social activities and work opportunities. If you are interested, you will attend community events, concerts, attend movies, go on a short walk, or explore work opportunities by helping him obtain applications and returning them for consideration. This is a great opportunity to spend some time in your community while helping another person.
Requirements to be a great volunteer include:
a desire to help others;
a pleasant demeanor;
a good reading/speaking voice;
average reading skills;
organizational or planning abilities;
a good driving record;
a clear criminal history;
access to a car with proof of insurance;
a minimum of $50/100k liability and $5,000 of property damage coverage.
