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 Denver Day Works program gives people in the community who are experiencing homelessness the opportunity to work; our participants clean up our parks and city buildings. Many of our participants are veterans, elderly and disabled. We need volunteers to provide them with breakfast or lunch. It's the only meal that most of them will get all day!
Feed the homeless at various locations around the Denver metro area. Make the food in your own kitchen and deliver breakfast to Civic Center park at 8 am, or bring lunch to the job site at around 11 am. The program runs Tuesday-Friday. All meals, ingredients and time are tax deductible. You'll cook for approximately 12 people.
You can do this one day per week, one day per month, one day every other month, or it can be a one time thing! Whatever you choose!
