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.
Goodwin House Palliative Care and Hospice is seeking volunteers to serve in their expanding program to serve Northern Virginia residents in their homes. As a volunteer, you will offer the comfort and companionship of a friendly visit with hospice patients. You may also provide respite by sitting with patients while their family members and care providers leave the house, or assist with running errands. Must be able to visit a hospice patient in his/her own home at least once a week. Orientation and ongoing training will be provided. Please join our hospice team for this rewarding work!
