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.
Provide companionship for someone that needs you. There are many people with life limiting illnesses that do not have family or friends visiting often or at all. As a Patient Support Volunteer, you become a trained friend to our patients. There are also families that would like the additional support from one of our volunteers. Provide peace - of -mind for a family, by sitting with their loved one while they go to the grocery store, or offer a listening ear for a family that needs someone to talk with. Every patient and families needs are different. Being a Patient Support volunteer is an awardingopportunity, please contact us for more information on ways you can contribute.
