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.
Friends from Meals on Wheels is a new friendly visitor program for seniors receiving Meals on Wheels in Santa Clara County.
We are in need of a Spanish speaking volunteer to make weekly friendly phone calls to seniors that are home bound and lonely. The phone calls are conversational, and involve asking the senior how they're doing, etc.
We ask for a commitment of about 1 hour/week for 4-6 months.
The completion of a volunteer application and a brief training are required.
If interested, please reply to this post. Or, email Cindy Thomas, Program Associate at: Cthomas@healthtrust.org. Phone: 408-961-9873.
