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.
FriendshipWorks is looking for volunteers to lead arts and crafts groups in nursing homes in Boston and Brookline as part of the Relaxing Through the Arts Program. This is a time for conversation and doing simple arts and crafts projects together. We will provide examples and a starter kit for each volunteer. In this way friendships are created through shared interests and activities and also, fun and enjoyment.
FriendshipWorks is a Boston based non-profit whose mission is to end social isolation and improve the quality of life of elders in Boston and Brookline. Be a friend to an isolated senior and bring joy and art in to their life!
