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.

Our mission is to cure and prevent Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis through research, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these digestive diseases through education and support.
The Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America supports research and education related to inflammatory bowel disease by:
Holding free educational programs for individuals who live with the daily challenges of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis.
Hosting CCFA Camp Oasis, which annually sends children with these diseases to a week-long summer camp free of charge.
Assembling support groups to help patients and their families cope with their illness on a daily basis.
Generating cutting-edge research, investigating causes and possible treatments for these diseases.
Creating much-needed awareness of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, and the need for the cure through fun, family-friendly community events.

I absolutely love volunteering for this non-profit organization! The staff is totally dedicated to the mission, many of them patients themselves, AND they are ever-so grateful for any and all assistance from volunteers. The Take Steps Walk at the Denver Zoo is a wonderful experience for families whether you volunteer or participate as a walker. It's also a great way to connect with others who have inflammatory bowel disease.
