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 like helping others? Can you drive? If so, we have the volunteer opportunity for you!
We are in need of a motivated, friendly individual to pick up wheelchairs and other pieces of mobility equipment from donors. All you need to do is come get the keys to our van (which has a wheelchair lift attached) and be able to find the donation location. The time commitment is low--once or twice a week--and flexible based on the donor.
All these seemingly-small tasks add up to one big life changing moment for our clients: When they receive their equipment, they gain the freedom they feared they would never be able to afford.
