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 WRC would like to provide its residents with varied and engaging programming. Most often, this type of programming costs money. Since our organization has limited funds, we are searching for individuals who would be willing to run programs as volunteers. Residents at the Bruce are working to be more self-sufficient; part of living a fulfilling life is to be equipped with the tools to live healthily. Programs would be focused on things that promote mental, physical and emotional health.
