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.
Volunteer with Queen City Hospice in the Anderson and east side area. Primarily volunteers provide companionship to the elderly who reside in Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing Facilities. Volunteers may also share their talents by providing art or music therapy, or if they have a certified therapy dog, they can provide pet therapy. This is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the community! Volunteers will need to meet requirements of a background check, drug screen, TB test, and orientation. All of these services are provided by Queen City Hospice, and are at no cost to the volunteer.
