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.
One of the biggest roadblocks to cancer treatment can be transportation. That’s why the American Cancer Society Road To Recovery program provides patients in need with free rides to treatment. Our volunteers have provided hundreds of thousands of rides for patients, but the need for drivers continues to accelerate. While we have some requirements for drivers, the biggest bump in the road is a willingness to help.
We have an urgent need for volunteers from all over Vermillion County, who have a willingness to drive to Champaign and Danville, especially. Volunteer now, and help give patients a much-needed ride. You might be surprised by the pick-me-up you get in return!!
