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.
We are in need of volunteer drivers to take patients to their doctors, chemo or radiation appointments. We have 2 vans or you can take your own vehicle if you prefer. Appointments can be local (West Islip or Bay Shore) or further away (Lake Success or Stony Brook). Appointments are typically Monday through Friday during business hours. Drivers must be 21 years old with a clean driving record and must be reliable and compassionate. This is a very rewarding way to volunteer by working one on one with someone in treatment and make a difference. Volunteers would need to stop into our office so we can meet you and get a copy of your drivers license.
