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.
The Chapman Partnership houses homeless families with children, who are actively seeking employment, for up to 90 days. Children (of all ages) in the facility attend public school during their stay and participate in after-school activities in the Chapman Partnership resource center. The Little Lighthouse Foundation brings its Story Hour to the resource center, to entertain and educate the children with group reading and arts & crafts activities.
The Little Lighthouse’s Move and Groove program is a hip hop inspired dance class to provide a space for self expression for children of all ages while encouraging a healthy lifestyle. Volunteers will assist in dance classes and ensure the children learn the routines. Volunteers for Move & Groove should arrive at 6:30 pm and are dismissed at 7:30 pm.
