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.
Be a Senior Buddy to a Senior by providing one-on-one companionship a couple hours a week to relive a family caregiver through the Interfaith Volunteer Caregiver Program (IVCP). Respite volunteers provide in-home visits to older adults being cared for by family members. Volunteers are matched with a family and serve as a friendly visitor for about 2 hours once a week providing the caregiver with a much-needed break.
Opportunities available in your area: Ann Arbor, Chelsea, Dexter, Manchester, Milan, Saline & Ypsilanti.
