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 needed on an on-going basis to assist Park Rangers and maintenance staff with daily chores in the garden. Special projects and events will also be included in your weekly activities.
The program is flexible, with a commitment of 12 hours per month.
We need volunteers who are friendly, patient and able to work safely with people of all ages. The ability to lift up to 30 pounds without straining is helpful too. All volunteers need to be comfortable working in outdoor conditions and have good verbal communication skills and able to follow directions.
Training is included.
