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.
Did you know the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk is a volunteer driven event?
You Are Invited to Be a Part of this very important project. A key component of the funding support for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is community involvement- providing the essential "people power" to organize and implement our action plan. It represents a unique and important opportunity for ordinary citizens and residents of the Greater Lakes Region area to make a lasting contribution to the fight against breast cancer for ourselves and future generations. Volunteer leaders and participants are vital to our efforts to reduce the impacts of breast cancer. The contributions of time and expertise to team projects are our most important and valued resource.
We hope you’ll consider joining us in this effort!
