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.
Give a gift to others while giving a gift to yourself!
Provide friendly visits to patients who are travelling their final journey in either Skilled Nursing/Assisted Living/Independent Living facilities or at home. Volunteers read newspapers/stories/books; play board/card games; watch television/DVD movies; write letters or merely provide companionship. The committment of time is small; only 1-3 hours/week. Patients are located in Gloucester, Camden, Salem and Burlington Counties. An excellent 12-14 hour training session is offered at no charge numerous times during the year at the convenience of our volunteer candidates. For more information, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 856.251.0707.
