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.
The Development & Events Volunteer position is an excellent opportunity to work in a professional, non-profit setting, with a goal of assisting in fundraising and creating unique and successful events. Animal Shelter Assistance Program (ASAP) is seeking someone with an interest in helping cats and kittens, though it is important to note that this volunteer position is not working in the shelter itself, and is at a nearby office.
