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.
The Overnight Volunteer Shift s the least exciting of our shifts, but one of the most important. In order to keep costs down, we rely on one volunteer and one paid staff to monitor the shelter throughout the night. Most days there is nothing of significance happening, which means the program is running smoothly. But some there is a sick child, or the fire alarm goes off or some other unexpected event. It's those infrequent events that require us to have two people on duty at all times. This job is perfect for students or other late birds that like some peace and quiet to read or study. But, we do provide a private bed for a night's rest if you prefer.
