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.
This role is essentially a fundraising role and we hope that you would like to do a minimum of 3 fundraising events/activities per year which is the goal that each of our fundraising volunteers aims for. If you are only able to commit to one a year then we would obviously still love to have you onboard and our volunteer co-ordinator will support you at every step.
What you do for fundraising is up to you but we think that you will need to be a people person and have, or want to develop, event planning, organisation and management skills. We would also love for you to get involved in the charity and how it is run and even go out to Kenya to visit the project and meet the children if you would like to. The extent to which you get involved is your choice but the opportunities are there for the taking!
Please be aware that we are a Christian charity and although we don't ask that you are a Christian to work with us, this would certain be a really good match for you if you are a Christian individual looking for a community outreach role.
