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.
We are looking for caring, compassionate individuals who have the heart and desire to be there in presence for someone who is actively dying. Our goal is to never have any of our patients die alone and we are in need of Volunteers who share the same philosophy. Often times we find our patients have families in other states, family that is no longer living, or don't have friends who can come visit or stay with them. This is where we need you...we need that person who wants to provide that comfort to another who has no one...or that person who would be willing to sit with a dying patient, while a family member goes out to make a phone call or get some sleep, but doesn't want to leave their loved one alone...If you feel this is something that you can help us with, then please reach out to us. We are always accepting of those who want to share their heart with others in need.
