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.
Mobilizing people and resources to deliver creative solutions to community needs
The heart of our mission - "mobilizing people and resources to deliver creative solutions to community needs" - lies in knowing the most urgent needs facing our community. We discover this by regularly listening to the members of our community.
When we discover that a critical community need is going unmet, we lead the way by assembling a team of like-minded volunteers to create a signature program or focus, such as Operation Teddy Bear or Food for Kids, which offer members of our community the opportunity to contribute to the solution.
We love that moment when community members join together and give their precious time to a worthy cause. When you find yourself inspired to take action, but you aren't sure exactly where to begin, we can help. Our partnerships within the community keep us connected to the pulse of the community's pressing needs. We use that knowledge to connect you to a personally meaningful experience.
Whether it's families, teens, seniors, professionals or court-referred volunteers, we serve EVERY member of our community. That is what has kept us "...at the heart of helping" for more than 50 years!
