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.
After long days at the hospitals, our families love to come home to warm meals. We are always in need of groups to provide and prepare these meals for us.
Our dinner program runs 7 days a week, including holidays. You will need to plan to cook for 25 people. We are open to many meal ideas, but please let us know what you plan to cook before hand so we can avoid repeats. You may bring up to 10 people with your group to help with food prep and cooking. Children 10 and up are invited to participate as long as there is adequate adult supervision. You may use our cooking utensils and equipment. If you need specialty items, please contact us first to see if they are available. We provide plates, silverware and napkins, but these items are donated to us so we welcome addition donations if possible.
We ask that dinner is served at 6:30. You may allow yourself as much time as you need prior to that to cook the meal here. The group is responsible for cleaning pots, pans and other cooking messes. Our evening staff and families will do dishes and put dinner away at the end of the night. Our families come home at different points through out the evening so the group is not required to stay through the end of dinner.
