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.
The Day Worker Center of Mountain View is a non-profit that helps bring employers and day laborers together. We are currently looking for professionals who are willing to share their special skills with our day workers!
We're seeking interested individuals who have worked in home improvement projects, such as remodeling, repair, maintenance, and demolition; but would also love others who have skills they can share with the community. We are open to new possibilities. If you have a lucrative idea that will help the workers make an honest living please contact us.
Some areas of interest include:
In-Home Care Giving
Arts & Crafts (Etsy)
DIY project (lotions, body scrubs, etc.)
All aspect of Restaurant Operations (food prep techniques and safety, hosting, waitering, table setting, bussing, etc.)
Skills training for women
Spanish is helpful but not required (unless of course you'd like to brush up on that high school Spanish you took years ago). Either way we can find someone to interpret! Help us by teaching a class or hosting a workshop. We are flexible and will work with your schedule. Join our community of volunteers now and get started on this great volunteering opportunity that will surely make a difference in day workers' lives!
