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.
We are an agency that serves homebound older adults. Our mission is to keep them in their homes for as long as possible. Many of them are socially isolated and the only person they see each day is the driver who comes to drop off their meals on wheels. This does not provide the socialization they so desperately need.
This is why we need you to be a friend to an older adult. To have a cup of coffee, tea, play cards, take a walk and/or just chat. We only ask for an hour per week. Volunteers can be from 18 to 80.
To find out more about this opportunity please contact Rosanne McAllister 718-981-6226 ext. 141.
