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.

Volunteers that help at a Gathering site are not only helping someone one-on-one with memory loss, the volunteer is also giving a day of respite to the caregiver of the person with memory loss. There are six Gathering sites around the Twin Cities, all supported by their local consortium of churches and Lyngblomsten. Gathering sites meet on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 10-3. The Gathering meets at two sites in White Bear Lake and West St. Paul, one site in Roseville and Woodbury. Lead volunteers plan five hours of brain stimulating activities for a one on one volunteer and a participant. All volunteers are fully trained by Lyngblomsten staff and other volunteers. If you like to plan activities, you may want to volunteer as a Lead, or if you would like to show up and create a great friendship with just one person, you may want to volunteer as a one-on-one volunteer. Contact Peggy Cerrito email@example.com for more information about volunteering for The Gathering or check out www.lyngblomsten.org/community-services/gathering/ for more information about The Gathering.
