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.

This was an enjoyable volunteer experience. Teaching children alternative art techniques such as string art was fun! Too bad VSA only has opportunities once a year; otherwise, this is a great organization to volunteer for.
