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.
When transportation is a cancer patient’s biggest roadblock to treatment, we help provide the rides that can help save lives.
The American Cancer Society Road To Recovery(r) program offers cancer patients free transportation to and from their cancer-related treatment. For those who cannot drive themselves or have no other means of getting to treatment, volunteers donate their spare time and the use of their personal vehicle to give cancer patients in their community a much-needed ride.
To ensure quality drivers, the American Cancer Society screens every volunteer. They must also complete a training course to prepare them for their new role. Requirements: * A good driving record * A current, valid driver’s license * Access to a safe and reliable vehicle * Proof of adequate automobile insurance * Complete an American Cancer Society training course * Availability Monday through Saturday during the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
