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.
Every Thursday groups come to our shelter and sponsor a dinner for our families since our parents attend a mandatory life skill class. They get home from work and often don't have time to prepare dinner for their families before they go to the class. While the parents are in class, the groups get to interact with our children.
We welcome clubs, church groups, families and anyone who'd like to spend a fun evening with our families! You are welcome to bring your own children and make this a family event!
What to bring?
Food: Pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs, pasta, sandwiches, juice, water, dessert, etc.
Activity for the kids: arts & crafts, teach a class, musical chairs, water balloon toss, bouncy house, or play some sports with them, etc.
These are just a few suggestions, we welcome any fun ideas you may have!
