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.
Drop In Play Time Volunteers (Children) - This position’s description is the same as Share the Care Volunteers and is also apart of our Mommy Respite Program; however, Drop In Play Time Volunteers have a more flexible schedule and is based on your availability to "drop in" for a children’s activity. This opportunity is flexible and could look different depending on the volunteer’s interest/skill. Activities could include arts and crafts, sports, story time, games, group exercise, baking, stress relief/management activities, etc. Activities can be provided by our Children’s Counselor or volunteers can coordinate their own ideas. We are asking that anyone interested in this position be able to commit 1-2 hours a month since transitioning people in and out is hard for our kids! RAVE is committed to making the stay at our shelter as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.
