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.
Everyday, we help adult artists with physical or developmental disabilities make their art. We also show and sell their art in our galleries. And we have opening receptions for celebration the shows. The receptions have food and drink and live music (or a deejay). We also have a number of fundraising events throughout the year. If you have experience in events coordination, we would love to have your help.
What we’ll need from you: the ability to focus on and complete a task with minimal supervision, an urge to be meticulous, a willingness to set up tables and organize food and drink, and simply to engage with our artists on a personal level. Experience working with the disability community is not necessary, but an interest in art certainly is required.
