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.
I need you and four of your friends or co worker to become volunteers with your neighbors who are blind. It is really easy and you will learn a lot about blindness and about yourself. You know you have always wondered "how do they do it?" Well, now you can learn and help someone at the same time. Helping others is the key to happiness! You might even get to work with a person and their guide dog!
Requirements to be a great volunteer include:
a desire to help others;
a pleasant demeanor;
a good reading/speaking voice;
average reading skills;
organizational or planning abilities;
a good driving record;
a clear criminal history;
access to a car with proof of insurance;
a minimum of $50/100k liability and $5,000 of property damage coverage.
