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.
City Dog 5k is an annual running event that consists of a 5k, 1 Mile Doggy Dash, and lots of great vendor/exhibitors, games, prizes, and speakers. It is a great community event for families, including their furrier members. We had our inaugural event on February 25, 2018 and are preparing for our next City Dog 5k on January 20, 2019. Check out www.citydog5k.com to see how fun it was!
We are looking to put together a team of individuals who can help plan this event starting now. We will need people to do fundraising, marketing, event planning, and volunteer and vendor coordination. All volunteers and their companies will have the opportunity to gain further visibility on our website, marketing efforts, and of course at the event if they would like.
