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 want to help people continue to live full lives?
Do you have a car or want to drive our van?
Do you have a little time each week or month?
Older adults in our community need short rides to get to or from appointments and social engagements.
Imagine needing to get to an appointment, but not having any transportation!? With YOUR HELP we can enable older adults and persons experiencing disabilities to continue to live in their homes and stay active in the community. It may only take 20 minutes, but it makes a huge difference. We do all the coordinating - you just let us know when you are available, and we let you know who needs a ride and to where!
It's a FLEXIBLE, IMPORTANT and MEANINGFUL way to positively impact the life of someone in need of a vital ride.
