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.
Do you have two hours a week to make a difference in the life of homebound seniors? For many who can no longer cook for themselves, this is their only hot meal for the day AND the volunteer is the only person they see that day. We’ll provide the food - you help provide the friendship.
You can choose any day(s), Monday through Friday, for a shift that begins at 10:30am. We ask volunteers to assist daily, once a week, twice a month, or act as a substitute as needed.
Volunteers must have a current driver’s license, current car insurance, pass our provided background check, and be at least 18 years old.
Drivers will use their own vehicle to deliver meals. Drivers take a hot meal to the door of each senior on the route, anywhere from 6-20 homes, taking approximately an hour and half to complete.
Runners work with a partner who drives the vehicle to the various stops to help make the deliveries.
Faith-based, service, or business groups can volunteer and share routes and schedules.
Please contact us to discuss the many ways to volunteer and how this can fit into your schedule.
