COVID-19 Volunteer Update

The Volunteer Action Centre Waterloo Region recognizes that in times of community distress many individuals want to be of assistance, helping where there is need. In almost every form of emergency, the offer of help and willingness to gather to get things done is appreciated. In a pandemic, this is not the case. Social distancing is the recommended course for containing virus spread.

During this time it is so important to help out your neighbours in the best way you can during this pandemic. Some ideas to help those closest around you, while maintaining social distancing: 

  1. Call your neighbours to see if they need anything (Ex. pick up groceries and drop off at porch, someone to talk to on the phone, someone to help with their lawn, etc)
  2. Drop a note off in their mailbox or connect virtually
  3. Share resources with each other as needed
