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.
Meals on Wheels is in need of volunteers to help with our Grocery Assistance Program in Carroll County. Volunteers are matched to a homebound individual in their area and work closely with their client to schedule shopping trips, prepare grocery lists, and help put groceries away. Volunteers don't take the client to the store, but they have a Meals on Wheels credit card and the client's shopping list to shop on their behalf. Each shopping trip averages 1-3 hours. The volunteer commitment for this program is a minimum of one year, and a strong sense of financial responsibility is required.
