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.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
Man's best friends (and their owners) are needed to provide companionship to animal-loving hospice patients.
There are a number of needing people that wish for comfort and companionship during their last journeys in life. Dogs have the ability to soothe and console like no other, but you already know that. The benefits of dog visits are physical, emotional, and social, according to The Alliance of Therapy Dogs. Come join the movement!
Grace Hospice Dog Therapy Volunteers provide companionship and support with patient visits. We are in need of therapy dogs in the Akron/Canton and surrounding areas. We'll match you with an animal-loving patient close by, and YOU dictate the time according to your schedule. It's a win-win for everyone!
To make this kind of difference, or to receive information regarding certification of your fur-baby, please contact Johanna Henderson, Volunteer Coordinator at Grace Hospice. 330-899-0180 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
