Volunteer Hub: June 2-8

Submitted to The Union

Connecting Point’s Volunteer Hub connects Nevada County residents of all ages to volunteer opportunities in the community.

Due to the statewide shelter-in-place order, many volunteer opportunities are still temporarily suspended. But there some organizations with opportunities that can be done remotely, from the comfort of your home. In order to best serve the needs of the local organizations who still urgently need volunteers, we have created a special “COVID-19 Opportunities” page on the Volunteer Hub that will be updated according to the needs of our partner organizations. This week, we are highlighting some brand new opportunities as we slowly and carefully reopen retail establishments and other public places. For more information on any of the following opportunities, please visit http://www.ConnectingPoint.org or call 211.
