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.
A community of caring individuals that provide social, emotional, and educational support to all people impacted by cancer.
Gilda's Club Evansville offers a life-enriching program in a non-residential, home-like setting where FREE wellness/support groups, lectures, workshops and social events are held for indivuals and families facing all types of cancer. Gilda's Club provides a place where anyone touched by cancer can laugh, cry, hug, confront fears, share triumphs and learn how to LIVE with cancer. It is aplace where people find strength, comfort, and wisdom by sharing their experiences.
Gilda's Club of Evansville is staffed by some of the most amazing and passionate people I've ever met. They go above and beyond to make sure no one with cancer faces 'it' alone. They are there for the diagnosed and the family and they reach out to make sure they know they are supported by people who have been in their shoes.
My favorite events to volunteer for are the events for the children. These kids have seen more than most and Gilda's Club lets them know they are supported and loved and not alone. And most importantly, lets kids be kids even if it is just for a few hours.
All of their services are FREE and they have a lot of different activities that you can volunteer for - many dates, times and locations. Contact Angie and she will get you set up. They are excellent at working around your schedule and their facility is top notch.
