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.
The mission of St. Cloud Community Pantry (SCCP) is to reduce hunger in the local area by providing food to residents in need. This is made possible through the generosity of our partners, supporters, and of course the volunteers. SCCP helps over 350 families each month.
There are a number of opportunities to serve at the SCCP. Each area varies in responsibility and time. The three main areas of interest can be found in providing services for those in need, cultivating a community garden or providing education.
VCI's part in this opportunity is to provide volunteers who are 55+ with a (free) comprehensive benefits package- CIMA supplemental insurance, a Life Insurance benefit, free workshops and more! Call your VCI RSVP Coordinator, Delilah McKay, for more information: 407-298-4180, x108.
