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 need volunteers to help us care for our hospice patients. Some patients need someone to talk to, share memories with, spend a pleasant hour with. Some patients need someone to sit with them while their caregiver takes a couple of hours away. If you can give 3 or 4 hours a month, we will match you up with a patient near your location. You will go through a comprehensive orientation to teach you all you need to know and we will "hold your hand" every step of the way. Come learn how you can help people in their time of greatest need. Please leave your phone number or call Sabra, our Volunteer Coordinator, at Silverado Hospice, 281-397-8800.
