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.
Make a house a home for a newly arrived refugee family. The week before a family arrives USCRI needs help putting together household items from the donation room. Home set-ups are week days from 9am to 12pm. Volunteers are responsible for cleaning the apartment, moving and setting up furniture and putting household items away. Welcome Team members must be able to lift 25 lbs. It is helpful to have a truck or van to help move furniture and to bring cleaning supplies and tools. Most home set-ups take place on the west side of Cleveland.
