ALBANY, NY | March 23, 2020
United Way of the Greater Capital Region has launched an online platform identifying volunteer opportunities with local agencies that are continuing to provide essential services and have a critical need for volunteers as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.
Both in-person and virtual opportunities are available at UnitedtoVolunteer.org. Current volunteer needs include sorting and stocking food pantry shelves, delivering food, prepping and passing out lunches, data management and sending e-cards.
Individuals can create a profile and sign up for one or more volunteer needs. Agencies seeking volunteers can also create a profile and upload their needs to the website. All agencies are required to provide a statement on the safety and sanitation policies they have put in place to protect their staff, clients and volunteers.
To make a monetary donation to the Capital Region Community COVID-19 Response Fund, visit unitedwaygcr.org/COVID-19 or text COVID19 to 41444.
