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.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
Our events bring authors in close contact with their readers. They are free and open to the public!
About Pen Parentis
Pen Parentis is a 100% volunteer run 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable organization that provides critical resources to writers to help them stay on creative track after they start a family. Founded by author (and parent) M. M. De Voe, the organization runs a bicoastal literary salon that seeks to change the stereotype of parent-writer by presenting works of a diversity of exemplary writers who happen to also be parents.
By focusing on writers, we hope to help create a world in which the arts community at large supports and embraces parenthood as a normal choice in any working artist’s life.
