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.
FRIENDSHIPWORKS: Matching Volunteers with Elders since 1984
FriendshipWorks is looking for "Walking Buddy" volunteers to visit with lonely older adults one day a week and get them outside with a healthy walk around the neighborhood. The Walking Buddies program combines the benefits of exercise and social contact by helping elders to engage in safe, healthy movement while building friendships. Your support will make it possible for a frail, isolated senior to get out in their community and enjoy the benefits of staying active.
