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.
Volunteers support staff at the program sites in Bridgeville, Dormont and Bethel Park. Volunteers assist staff with a variety of clerical tasks from alphabetizing to filing. In the Medical Records office volunteers are needed to operate the Document Imaging Machine (similiar to a computer scanner) and training is provided. There is something for everyone! Volunteers provide a great deal of support to the staff who are responsible for processing information for client records.
The agency is open M-F (9-5). Volunteers generally come in 1/week for 2-4 hours, but we are flexible. It is a very friendly place with nice staff and volunteers. If you are interested I would suggest you come in for an interview and possibly visit the program site.
Interested volunteers are asked to complete the application process which includes a criminal clearance (which we pay for). Volunteers are also asked to sign a confidentiality statement.
Great opportunity for moms with school age children, or for retirees who are looking for an ongoing opportunity in a friendly environment.
