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.
Do you have 3 to 5 hours per month to spare to share to make someone's live just a little better, to provide short visits to our patients for companionship and emotional support? If so, Gentiva Hospice is currently seeking volunteers to provide emotional support and socialization to our patients through reading, listening, journaling and family support through brief respite breaks, running errands, assisting around the house, and possible yard work. Your time spent with our patients and their families is priceless gift to them. Many times our patients and families feel lonely, sad and depressed but, with your support you brighten their day, lighten the load of 24 hour care giving and bring hope and joy to their lives during this very tough and trying time in their lives. Your gift of hope as a volunteer you get back a million times over. Come join our team of volunteers that make a difference in your community today! Become Gentiva Volunteer a make a difference every day!
