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.
Cornerstone Hospice is looking for Veteran Volunteers that would be willing to sit with another Veteran while his caregiver runs an errand, attends a medical appt, or just gets out of the home for a couple of hours. Polk County has a large population of Veterans and Cornerstone Hospice has found our Veteran Patients can relate much better to another Veteran and will often times share stories of their Military Service only with another Veteran. We are also a member of the We Honor Veterans Program and our Veteran Volunteers provide a Cornerstone Salute Pinning Ceremony for our Veteran Patients. If you have a couple of hours a month and would like to help another Veteran, this volunteer opportunity is for you.
