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.

Contacted this organization twice about the listed volunteer opportunity (sewing dog coats), but I never got a response. :-(
UPDATE: On 1/23/14, this group received my email (as described above) but didn't respond. On 8/19, they sent me their email newsletter. So clearly they got my email and instead of replying, they added me to their newsletter list without my permission. Sleazy move.
When I told them to unsubscribe me and why, they apologized. They offered to send me the dog coat sewing info, if I was still interested. On 8/26, I said yes, send it. They replied and said they would, but they didn't. AGAIN. Today is 9/10 and I haven't received anything from them.
I hope they do a better job with their dogs than they do with their volunteers.
