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.
You can be an integral part of the lives of the community's treasured Veterans through Cascade Hospice. As our patients near end-of-life, they so appreciate having someone who can understand what they've gone through and someone they can trust to hold their truths. We offer a free training on becoming a bedside companion, someone who can offer a hand to hold, a listening and empathetic ear or just to sit and be a calming presence. Hospice is not for those who are dying - it is for those who wish to live fully in the days they have remaining. If you would like to learn more about how you can become involved, visit: www.cascadehealth.org and click on the hospice volunteering tab.
