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.
Mobilize people and resources to drive research for a cure and address the challenges of everyone affected by MS. Dedicated to ending the devastating affects of MS.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society funds more MS research, offers more services to people with MS, provides more professional education programs and advances more MS advocacy efforts than any other MS organization in the world. Through its home office and fifty-state network of chapters, the National MS Society provides assistance to over a million people annually in its continuing mission to end the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis.
Seeking out and engaging volunteers to the MS cause is at the very core of our business. Each year the Society organizes a series of community events that provide many opportunities for the enthusiastic volunteer. The Society offers three key fundraising activities: The MS Bike Tour, MS Walk and MS Challenge Walk. The Society also engages volunteers to help influence law-makers at the federal, state and municipal levels toward legislation important to people with MS. The Society is looking for passionate volunteers with expertise in areas such as: marketing, communications, public relations, corporate and donor development, medical, legal, administrative and organizational expertise.
Of course it is a great organization and I wanted to volunteer to help with their event. But I was turned off when I went to the volunteer page of the website and the first thing there is a request for a contribution. I didn't appreciate that.

This is a great group of people. They have a great compassion to help. They work with the volunteers on their ability to do certain jobs. I have MS and some times I could stand and other times I couldn't. They would work with me so I could continue to volunteer. I am hoping to start helping again. I miss them and I miss helping others. I would highly recommend volunteering for the Indiana MS Society.
