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.
Are you a Veteran interested in helping other Veterans? Hospice of UnionCounty is looking to recruit local Veterans to volunteer for hospice patients/families who have been identified as Veterans. Veteran Volunteers have the unique ability to connect, relate and share camaraderie with hospice patients who also have military experience. Activities may include: companionship, socialization, telling life stories, helping with veteran recognition efforts, yard work, assistance with veteran benefits or replacing lost medals, among others. All volunteers are required to attend our 12 hours of general volunteer training sessions. These sessions are scheduled throughout the year.Consider joining our Hospice Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer Program today!
