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.
We have clerical/administrative opportunities within our office available. This would entail assisting our staff with numerous tasks including answering the phone, copying, filing to name a few.
In addition, we have companion visit opportunities where volunteers are requested by the family and patients to offer presence, companionship and emotional support with visits within their residences. These visits are coordinated with nursing and follow an orientation session.
