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.
Office Hours Volunteer - being at the office to be a resource to people who come in with questions. This could include dropping off donations, picking up an animal, or looking for supplies. We would like people to commit to a block of time to be able to do weekly at the same date/time. During this time you can help by cleaning and organizing the office, doing laundry and letting out the dogs. There is always plenty of activities to get done when you are at the office! Office Hour shifts are 2-4 hours.
Let out Volunteer - these people help us with the dogs in the office that are there. This includes walking the dogs, giving them food and water and any medications, and cleaning up the kennel areas when needed. Let out time varies but dogs would like 10-15 minute walks individually.
