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.
Bringing active members of our community together to provide 5-star, faith-based programming that center on fun, friends, and faith for children and adults with special needs.
We aim to provide first-class experiences for individuals with special needs and their families that offer opportunities to have fun, meet new friends, and live out their Christian faith. While observing how the Church has widely underserved those with disabilities, we are working with local churches in building a grassroots effort to develop a volunteer base that is compassionate and energized about serving the needs of the special needs community. We are building this volunteer base by bringing active adults together through sports leagues and tournaments and using this as our platform to teach and mobilize caring individuals. Our volunteers comprise the engine that allows us to provide these life changing programs and offer an incredible experience on an individual, 1on1 scale.
All-Stars Club is well-organized and fun. I met great people, both buddies and volunteers; was encouraged to participate outside of my comfort zone; and felt truly appreciated by my buddy for the night.
