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 preserve and enrich the quality of life for frail adults and to provide respite and support for their caregivers.
Friendship Center is an adult day care center serving the frail elderly. 70% of our members have been diagnosed with Alzheimers disease, with others having had strokes, Parkinsons and other conditions. Our activities include Adult Education Classes, Current events, Musical programs, Horticulture, Exercise classes, Arts and Crafts, Group discussions, Picnics, Community outings, group discussions, and Intergenerational activities. We serve breakfast, lunch and a light snack. Contributions from families participating in our program are based on ability to pay. We have an annual fund raising event in February to support our HEART Program, which insures that no person in need of our services is turned away.
