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.
Our Veterans have served our country well. Now is the time to volunteer to be a friendly visitor to a veteran who is facing their final tour of duty. No hands-on care required. Just someone to be a friendly support who understands and has served our country. A veteran receiving hospice care may live in their own home, assisted living center, nursing home or reside with a family member. These visits are extremely flexible. Full training provided. Help make a difference to a Veteran. Listen to their story. Share the camaraderie. Go and change YOUR world. Thank you.
