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.
Help staff a vacation hostel that raises funds to support the homeless during the cold-weather months. Belknap House Vacation Hostel operates from Memorial weekend until Columbus Day weekend every season. From Oct 15 to May 15 the location operates as a homeless shelter. The hostel operation provides up to 1/5 of the operating funds for the homeless shelter.
Vacation Hostel assistants are needed to help with reservations, manage the reception desk, answer guest questions, perform light cleaning, and help guests check in and check out.
Training will be provided for all interested volunteers. Volunteers will need to complete an application and undergo a background check.
