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.
To reach the unreached, to love the unloved, ultimately help to restore the hearts back to Christ.
The main target of the outreach is placed upon reaching the millennials (ages 18-37) with an emphasis being placed upon showing them the love of Christ through acts of kindness, while teaching them the character of Christ, ultimately helping to restore their hearts back to him. As they continue to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ, we want to be able to help empower them to walk in their divine gifts as well as help give them the tools that they need to be successful in their lives.
We want to do this be providing three services:
Service 1) We help equip millennials with life skills such as organizational skills business skills and professionalism skills.
Service 2) Empowerment Sessions aka "Real Talk Sessions". Here in these sessions people have a free space to be who they are and come to know Christ without judgment.
Service 3) Empowerment Packs: are backpacks that consist of basic toiletries. We distribute these empowerment packs to the local homeless throughout the area.
