Volunteer Opportunities

We have many opportunities for you to get involved and support your fellow citizens who have been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. 

Some of these people may be in self-isolation or quarantine, and they need healthcare or food delivery. Others may need help to pick-up their child’s school breakfast and lunch.

However you can volunteer, there are many needs!

Below you’ll find the needs and the organization you need to contact to get you started! 


DELIVER Food/Household Items to Homes

We need volunteers to pick up and deliver items to individuals or families isolated at their homes. If you are willing to pick up and deliver items to doorsteps, please contact us!
