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 Friendship Center is a licensed Adult Day Care Center where our goal is to provide social contact, companionship, engaging activities, nourishing meals, and supervision for the dependent adults who attend our program. For their family caregivers, we offer respite-a break from the demands of caregiving.
The guests who come to our program daily often suffer from dementia or other forms of memory loss but one thing that is not lost is their love for the arts! Music, dance, performances of any kind bring so much joy to them! We have a piano, dozens of song books and a fully stocked art room with supplies. Contact Program Manager Kathryn Cherkas at (805) 969-0859 for more info on how to get involved!
