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.
Volunteers are an integral part of our philosophy. Hospice volunteers are there to hold a hand and listen, read or write a letter, run errand or even help out in the office. Volunteers are there to step in when a family member needs a break, and they are there for the family and friend after their loved one has passed away. No matter what your skills, talents or motivation, we have the opportunity for you to help.
