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.
This is the Antiphonal organ installed at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Issaquah WA. Volunteers did 95% of the work on this organ including its installation (see http://www.pipeorganfoundation.org/news/current_news10.html).
Volunteers are needed to do hands on work in the rebuilding of pipe organs which have been discarded due to closure of churches and other reasons. See the Volunteers page in www.pipeorganfoundation.org for pictures and information about the things volunteers do. The organs are repaired and customized for public settings where a pipe organ is desired and would be played regularly but where it cannot be afforded. Volunteers in the Foundation may also assist in settings with limited funds where pipe organs are in place but where they are in need of repair and tuning.
