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.
Have you thought about making a difference in the life of someone else. Maybe you would like to be the one who offers comfort to the hurting. Maybe you would like to be that listening ear to the one who feels unheard. Maybe you would like to be the one that gives companionship to the one who feels a little overlooked. Maybe you could be the one who can just be there to make a difference by your presence. By becoming a hospice volunteer your opportunity could look different from day to day. You may be helping with bingo, coloring a picture with a patient, watching a movie or listening to them tell a story that they may have told a thousand times. If you would like to be that person that makes a difference than volunteering for Hospice is for you.
