Since our beginning, we have worked with many non-profit organizations. Like you, Matches That Matter™ staff members live here, and want to contribute to the quality of life in the community by being a real partner in giving back. We are making a difference in our environment and the lives of others.
The result – we offer fun, exciting and very sociable events so our Members can get to know other over-40 singles in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Below is a list of recent activities and events. If you’re interested in joining, simply contact us today.
Matches That Matter™ Flight Groups are designed to work well together, based on common interests. Each Flight stays together for an average of three activities over three weeks. At each activity, a Matches That Matter™ host is on hand, to ensure the project’s success and our Members’ comfort.
Our volunteers have shown a strong desire to over-deliver on their volunteer commitments and take great pride in achieving what was requested of them. Recent activities have included:
- Flight group catalogued 80 years of historical books and periodicals.
- Team helped an all-volunteer museum transform its manual indexing into a modern online system.
- Members scanned books, articles and periodicals to complete the project.
- Planned and hosted Community Plant Exchange.
- Team developed the event from planning to execution.
- Painted signs, staged equipment, and sorted donated plants. On event day, the team helped manage the larger group of volunteers.
- Developed a well-designed garden.
