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.
It doesn’t take a big commitment to make a big impact. We're looking for volunteers to deliver grocery bags twice a month to home-bound recipients in need! Grocery bags with non-perishable items and fresh produce are picked up in Center City, Philadelphia and delivered to households in North Philly, South Philly, and West Philly. Time and day are flexible according to volunteers' schedules though we encourage Wednesday afternoons or evenings. Routes typically take 45 - 60 minutes.
If you are interested or for more information, please contact Phil Holtje - firstname.lastname@example.org or call (215) 832-0815.
