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.
Imagine living your entire life independently and then one day you're required to give up your car keys, the source of your transportation. How will you get to the grocery store, the doctor, to church? Clients of Drive A Senior-South Austin, a 501c3 nonprofit, have a resource available. We provide a supportive network of personalized and individualized services to senior's age 65 and older at no charge. Volunteers are needed who enjoy this population to serve as drivers, office volunteers, and committee and board members. There are no minimum or maximum time commitments; you decide based upon your availability and geographical preferences and self-assign yourself on our web-based scheduling system! Easy and fun! Hear lots of good stories, plenty of 'thank you's.' Let your children share in the experience of having a senior friend!
