As recent news coverage from 3 News Now has illuminated, a few of our pillar human services organizations are being challenged by the need for volunteers. COVID-19 has strained or halted their typical streams of ongoing and one-time volunteers, leaving a daily need for help in order to continue delivering their services to our neighbors who need them most.
“We would really appreciate just a couple of hours a month,” Open Door Mission Chief Community Relations Officer Amy Harvey shared with 3 News Now. “If you can do two hours every month, that’s an entire 24 hours in a year that you worked on changing lives.”
During this time when shelters, human services organizations, and other important nonprofits are experiencing staff shortages, volunteers make an even greater difference in making sure they can continue to help the clients who depend on their work.
So how can you help? Submit your interest to volunteer now. You’re needed!
