Volunteers Needed!
Two-thirds of American volunteers decreased or stopped volunteering due to the pandemic according to a new study.  Part of the reason was that many volunteers were unable to easily find virtual opportunities Today the virtual Volunteer Expo will feature more than 100 local, virtual volunteer opportunities. The Standard’s Volunteer Expo features more than 100 local nonprofits with opportunities in person or virtual, one time or repeating. Examples include:
– Children’s Book Bank – Families or individuals can volunteer to clean used books for children in need either at the Book Bank’s warehouse or at home.
