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.
Interested in group or corporate volunteer opportunities? The ReBuilding Center works with groups of volunteers for all sorts of special projects year round. Volunteering with a group can build relationships, increase group morale, and create community connections.
Whatever your group size, makeup, or skills, we have a project for you. Some of the things you might do include:
- De-nailing lumber for use in our ReFind Carpentry Classes, the construction of tiny houses for the houseless, or for resale in our 50,000sq.ft retail space on N. Mississippi. - Sorting and processing donated materials (doors, windows, hardware, lighting). - Measuring and labeling doors and windows so folks can find that perfect piece. - Making minor home repairs for neighbors in need.
And we're more than happy to gear projects to your group needs and areas of focus.
