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.
The organization provides repair services that are much needed in the Nashville Metro area. They are well organized, don't waste time, and have great volunteers. The homeowners are terrific people and need and appreciate the volunteers' efforts. At the end of the day, everyone feels like they've really accomplished something.
The leadership and planning is accurate,fair, and comprehensive-especially review of recipient need.The enlistment of both professional and nonprofessional workers is well blended.Safety for volunteers and respect/courtesy to home owner were most impressive.I have been blessed to participate.
It was a great opportunity to give back to the community and to learn different home repair tasks. We painted, landscaped, cleaned and some local providers donated new flooring and windows (which we learned how to put in). The interaction with the homeowner, who was there during the day, was also very rewarding.
