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.
It's 2018, beginning of year 2 and Street Samaritans is growing!
We're looking for energetic, passionate and motivated individuals in the Chicagoland area to join our Associate Board. We believe that to scale our organization and alleviate the cause of homelessness in Chicago, we have to continue to on-board more and more Street Samaritans that want to make our community better.
Each year, over 125,000 adults and children experience homelessness in our city. It is our core mission and passion to bring help, human connection and relief to those afflicted brothers and sisters. We also strive to educate our volunteers and the general public on good stewardship and social citizenship, true causes of homeless and proper interaction. Lastly, we partner with corporate partners and non-profit organizations to bring lasting change.
We need Associate Board Members to help us organize outreach events, support fundraising efforts, produce educational materials, identify areas of improvement, identify new partnerships and promote our organization.
Does that seem like a role you would like to take on in your free time? Do you want to help those living without means to thrive or shelter? Do you want to make a difference in our community?
If you answered yes to any of the questions, we would love to hear from you.
