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.

Bring animals for a visit to assisted living and memory care communities dedicated to serving those with Alzheimer’s and other senior facilities. Volunteers meet up at the shelter to transport friendly dogs and cats to visit with the residents. Currently, we visit Autumn Leaves in Clear Lake every fourth Tuesday of the month at 9:15 am. We are looking to expand the program to more local senior communities. Pets greatly improve the health of seniors by reducing stress, lowering blood pressure, increase social interaction and physical activity.
