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.
Hospice patients, including veterans, appreciate volunteers who talk, read and play games with them during visits. Many get very lonely, so they really enjoy visits. Patients in nursing homes or patients who do not have families especially appreciate the visits. Heartland serves patients throughout Oakland County, particularly the southwestern area, including South Lyon, New Hudson and Novi. We will train you and walk every step of the way with you.
