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.
There are special people with special skills. We are looking for those special people to do continuous care with our patients who are actively dying. These volunteers need a medical background of some sort. They will not be doing any medical care. It is just a matter of sitting with our patient who is dying. It is important to have some familiarity and comfort with people who are dying. Please contact us if you are one of those special people. This isnot a scheduled volunteer opportunity, but volunteers are needed intermittently and frequently on the weekend.
