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.

I began volunteering with Lemondrop at its inception in 2011, when they opened as a performing arts company to help disabled and less fortunate children in Los Angeles. As a former actress the idea of giving back was very exciting for me. When they branched out to open up Lemondrop Farm Sanctuary, I was the first to volunteer to help. Later after the drought, they decided to move the headquarters to North Florida where water was more abundant, and I volunteered to be the first full time onsite volunteer.
Working with Lemondrop has been the most rewarding experience of my life. It has literally altered my goals and focus, I'm no longer self-consumed, I look to see where I can give back to both people and animals. I never thought volunteering with a nonprofit would change my entire outlook on life.
I highly recommend Lemondrop to anyone who is looking to participate in something larger than yourself. They have a very small staff, but they are so dedicated to providing to others.
