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.
In many cultures, Alzheimer's Disease is still "taboo", an issue that isn't discussed in polite company. The Alzheimer's Association seeks to change that, reaching out to the different cultural groups in the Bay Area.
To make this happen, we are in need of volunteers with multilingual language skills to help reach out to the various communities. We are currently seeking volunteers who are fluent in Chinese to better reach Chinese communities.
