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.
Would you like to give back to the community by spending time with people in need of compassionate support? Cornerstone Hospice is looking for a few good volunteers to visit with patients in the home setting or skilled nursing centers. Volunteers read to, watch tv with, listen to music with, or just be present with patients facing a life limited disease. If you would like to walk a dog or take a pet to the groomer or to the vet, we have a great Pet Peace on Mind Program that we need you for. Pet Therapy teams are also in need. If you have time and compassion to join our team, I look forward to hearing from you. Our next volunteer training class is Saturday, April 28th at our Lakeland location. Please call Pat Gruber at 863-291-5567 to register.
