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.
Making a difference for those at the end of life can have a profound effect on our lives and the lives we touch. As a TrinityCare volunteer, you'll work together with or palliative care and hospice team to meet the needs of each patient and their family. We serve both adults and children. There are many opportunities to share your unique talents and gifts.
We are looking for volunteers that play instruments and would be willing to take their guitar, violin, or other instrument to the homes of our TrinityKids Care or TrinityCare Hospice patients. Music can be healing, enjoyable, and therapeutic to those dealing with a terminal illness. It can bring light and joy, as well as nostalgia and comfort to the patients and families who are facing some very difficult times.
If you play an instrument and would like to share this gift with patients throughout orange county, please reach out. We provide training, the hours are flexible, and we match you with families close to you.
