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 volunteered at the 2nd annual Art of Giving Gala. The volunteer information prior and the direction and organization on site were very well done. It was fun to be able to volunteer at an event that required formal dress attire! My only suggestion would be for them to stagger volunteer shifts a little since we didn't actually get busy for our duties til several hours after arrival. Overall, it was a really wonderful event and the best volunteer treatment I've had so far!
