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.
Come join us as a Heart to Heart Volunteer at Winter Growth, a home-away-from-home assisted living facility with locations in Olney and Columbia. Enjoy an hour or two of laughter and high energy with our more active residents; or, if you prefer, make quiet connections with seniors struggling with physical or cognitive challenges. You can make a difference by lending a hand with lunch, playing board games, participating in arts and crafts activities, chatting with residents, teaching basic computer skills, or leading small group learning encounters. Have ideas or talents to share? Bring them along! We love trying new things.Winter Growth has a special 1/2 hour orientation program to get you started.
