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.
Friday Morning Gardeners is a hands-on program that is perfect for the rugged volunteer who is eager to get their hands dirty with tasks such as: planting, sweeping pathways, clearing plant debris, deadheading, weeding, and removing invasive species. Horticultural volunteers may do light pruning. Volunteers work as a team on Friday mornings. After attending an orientation session, volunteers are asked to commit to a Friday shift from 9am-12pm and volunteer for at least 3 hours per month or 36 hours per year.
