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.
SeniorServ is looking for a friendly visitor for a lonely, isolated senior in Anaheim. As a friendly visitor, you visit in the home of the older adult and offer conversation, friendship, and understanding. A commitment of one to two hours per week is all that is expected, which may not seem like much to you, but it will mean the world to this senior. He has Stage 4 Cancer and really wants someone to talk to over coffee and a donut. He has a lot of stories and loves to share them.
As a volunteer you will be a part of SeniorServ, who provides services for over 900 homebound seniors in Orange County, to help seniors remain as independent as possible. SeniorServ's mission is to nourish the wellness, purpose, and dignity of seniors and their families in our community. The Friendly Visitor Program is an important part of that mission. Will you use your abilities and your kindness to help? If you will, please contact us.
