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.
If you love helping seniors and live in the Nob Hill area (California Street, between Stockton and Powell), NEXT Village SF would love your help! Visit with a dear senior female and provide assistance with basic household tasks for an hour or two, once a week, and brighten her day with your presence. Providing undivided attention to a senior can boost their spirit and ease their mind. Spend a little time with this dear senior and you will make a big difference!
95% of us want to grow old in the comfort of our own home. NEXT's goal is to help the elderly in Northeast SF do just that! We also work to increase the member's well being by reducing social isolation and loneliness by hosting workshops, cultural events and outings. Some of our members have lived in their homes/apartments for 40 years-plus.
NEXT Volunteers help by: providing companionship, helping with technology, providing transportation to the grocery store, errands, medical appointments, or social events, leading a class or speaking about something interesting to a group.
