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.
Do you have reliable transportation? Are you looking for a way to help those in your community? If so, we need you!
Due to a lack of transportation, homebound elderly often have difficulty picking up their prescriptions, which can cause serious health and medical issues. The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services is in need of volunteers like you with reliable transportation to pick up prescribed medications and deliver them to homebound elderly adults or people with disabilities.
All volunteers are required to complete a background check, attend orientation, and complete online trainings.
