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.
Groups or individuals are needed to prepare and bring in, (and serve, if desired,) a lunchtime meal at the Daystation, the COTS daytime shelter for adults, which is open 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Plan on feeding up to 50 people. We request that meals be healthy and well-balanced. Soups, casseroles, etc. are typical fare, but some people really go all out and serve roasts, potatoes and gravy, vegetables, etc. Fruit or a low-sugar dessert is welcome as well. We try to stay away from sweets and pastries because many guests are diabetic.
