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 are always seeking volunteers to help us deliver our events and programs which support military members, veterans and their families. A little time and dedication can go a long way at our upcoming events.
Some volunteer roles we are looking for include:
Solicitation of donations
Help buying and putting together care packages
Help collecting and distributing back to school and holiday supplies
Behind the scenes folks (mailings, centerpieces for events etc.)
To join the Thanks To Yanks volunteer team, please complete the Volunteer Information Form. We will add you to our volunteer database and mailing list.
Thank you for your willingness to help us help those who serve(d).
By you volunteering with your time/donation, etc. you are helping a veteran/service member:
get a new furnace with the assistance of the Marine Corps League
pay closing costs on a home built by Habitat for Humanity working through the local Veteran Service Organization (VSO)
return a car after it was towed during a snow storm with assistance from Project New Hope and VSO
help with back payment of storage costs and delivery of personal belongings
