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.
We provide help to homeless teens and those in need one life at a time.
We are a non-for-profit organization that runs a teen drop in center where our homeless teens can have a safe environment to shower, get a hot meal, wash clothes if needed, get some clean clothing from our clothing closet, do homework, and even have some fun recreational time. This center right now is open 2 days a week from 3 pm - 8 pm with our goal within a year to be 4 days a week. In addition, we have monthly clothing distribution events where we distribute clothing to our homeless teens and those in need. We offer clothing items, a pair of shoes, coat, gloves, hats, hygiene kit, and a meal. These distributions happen one Saturday out of every month either at our Teen Drop in Location or at different areas and community centers throughout our community.
