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.
Bring your cheerful "SMILE" & be a MUCH-NEEDED companion & visit with some of our Hospice Patients! These are generally elderly people with life-threatening illnesses & they are in need of companionship! You might be asked to do some or all of the following with our patients: read to them, hold their hand, push them around in a wheelchair & socialize them, speak to them, look at photo albums, play music for them, paint fingernails for the Ladies, take them a donated blanket or other items, discuss family, help with Facility Activities & Events as needed, etc. Music Therapy, Pet Therapy & Military is desired but not required.
