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.
Let us remember the service of our veterans, and let us renew our national promise to fulfill our sacred obligations to our veterans and their families who sacrificed so much so that we can live fee. ~Dan Lapinski
We are seeking veterans to visit with our hospice patients who are veterans. The goal of this program is to honor people for their service and to create opportunities to share experiences. Vet to Vet volunteers may assist with:
Record stories for the Veteran History Project
Bring recognition gifts on holidays
Assist families in applying for a presidential memorial certificate
Visits are typically 1-4 hours, every 1-2 weeks. Our patients are located throughout the Metro area and you can choose to visit veterans close to your home.
You do not need medical training. You just need a desire to help.
