Volunteer Hub: May 31 – June 6

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

Due to COVID-19, many volunteer opportunities have been suspended. But there are still a number of organizations with volunteer positions that can now be done remotely, from the comfort of your home or with safety precautions in place. We are devoting this week’s Spotlight to a single organization: Color Me Human. CMH’s mission is to celebrate, elevate, educate, and advocate to create a safe, equitable world for Black, Indigenous, People of Color and LGBTQ+ people. CMH is just one of the many valuable local organizations that can be found at the Volunteer Hub. For more information, please visit http://www.connectingpoint.org or call 211.
