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.
Independence. You know what it is like to be independent - to be able to drive your car when you want, to go to the grocery store or out with friends. But have you ever thought about what it would be like to no longer be able to do all the things we take for granted?
There is a need for volunteers to help seniors and people with disabilities gain or maintain their independence. If you've ever had someone do something nice for you, then you know the good feeling you received from their kind gesture.
Give others this good feeling by helping them with every day tasks, take them to doctor's appointments, assist them in getting groceries, or simply spend time visiting with them.
Volunteers choose who they would like to help and how much time they have to share with others.
Volunteers enjoy free supplemental accident, excess auto liability and personal liability insurance while volunteering and free membership in Rx Optical Vision Advantage Program.
