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.

Pennsbury Manor is the reconstructed home of William Penn - prominent Quaker and founder of Pennsylvania! The quiet setting of this 43-acre estate offers a welcome relief from the hustle-and-bustle of modern life where visitors can experience 17th-century colonial life. During special events and on Sundays we offer the public period craft demonstrations, such as open hearth cooking, beer brewing, blacksmithing, joynery, medicine, laundry, flax & wool production and many more! All demonstrations are done in period clothing, which we provide for you, and there is no experience required! Wheather you'd like to learn one or multiple trades, contact us for more information today!
(NOTE: Some crafts require volunteers to be 18+ years of age)
