It has been a year+ since my last post. A lot has happened in the past year, but nothing can be compared to the current pandemic, coronavirus aka Covid19. It is only a quarter into the year 2020 now, but Covid19 has heavily impacted people’s lives everywhere. What we all took for granted, freedom to go anywhere we want, freedom to eat whatever we want, freedom to socialize with anyone and everyone, are all seemingly on hold as social distancing becomes the norm.
With only essential workers heading to work, and only essential businesses open, volunteering opportunities are limited. I am hoping to share Covid websites with good information on this blog post and any related volunteering opportunities that organizations need to help others out during this time. There are many remote volunteering opportunities available that can be done safely at your own homes. Of course, there are also volunteering opportunities that are not remote, but make sure you follow the rules and regulation set forth in your local communities before venturing out. I’ll keep updating this post as I find more information and opportunities. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any recommendations.
Remember: Staying at home to volunteer is the best option at this time, but if you do want to help out in person, please follow your local government rules and regulations first and foremost. Do stay home if you are sick OR if you have contact with anyone that is sick or may be sick.
