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.

As a volunteer assisting in this activity, you will help inspect perishable and/or non-perishable foods for their expiration date and quality, then package those good foods into bags/boxes that will be distributed to our hungry neighbors in the next few days.
Volunteers may be asked to lift up to 40 pounds, though there are many activities that are lighter duty. Volunteer opportunities can be physically demanding, so individuals should be able to stand, lift, pull, push, and bend. In the event that a volunteer is unable to lift certain weights or needs to participate in a different activity, please contact in advance to ensure an alternate project is available.
