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.
Please volunteer at Silver Hill to share your love of baking and some simple recipes that allow a group of patients enjoy Friday or Sunday morning with you, each other and the staff. Our baking group volunteers arrive at 10:45 a.m. to set everything up in the kitchen of a residential program. You will teach the residents how to follow a recipe, organize the ingredients, and end up with a tasty (and sometimes healthy) treat for all to enjoy. You select the recipe and we will buy the ingredients or you may do so and we will reimburse you. You do not have to be a professional pastry chef; however you should be mature and comfortable with yourself and others. Ideally, we would like you to participate in one of our hospital orientations that take place on the first Monday of the month (except holiday Mondays). A background check (hospital conducts) and a current reference (you provide) are required.
