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.
Seasons Hospice & Palliative care is seeking volunteers for our music companion program. We are reaching out to our community in hopes of finding music enthusiasts. We are looking for folks who play an instrument, sing, or who are willing to be a supportive presence and just press play on a boom box. Our volunteers give their time to help patients and families who are dealing with terminal illness and death.
Volunteer training is provided, as well as ongoing support and education opportunities to be sure you feel ready and equiped to help our patients. We are hoping that this opportunity will spark an interest in the hearts of musicians who are looking for a meaningful volunteer experience.
