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.
There are a variety of ways to volunteer with our organization. A Volunteer Companion provides emotional, social, and practical support to the hospice patient and his/her loved ones. This can include; providing meals, reading, sitting with the patient, running errands, writing letters, sharing hobbies, and listening. A Volunteer Bereavement Companion provides support to friends, family members, and/or caregivers who have lost a loved one through hospice. An Office Volunteer provides administrative and clerical support for the Hospice program. Other volunteer opportunities frequently become available, depending on the needs of our patients and their loved ones.
We are flexible and will work around your schedule.
