United Way’s “Where to Volunteer”

Sunday March 15, 2020 | Volunteer

United Way of King County

United Way has links to ways to volunteer at the site above, and offers this advice on how to safely volunteer:

Honor the public health recommendations. If you’re delivering supplies or food to a family or  organization, follow the suggestion of social distancing – ring the doorbell and move away from the door, text them beforehand, etc.

Feel connected through solo volunteering. Even if you’ve signed up for a solo volunteering opportunity – like delivering food to someone who needs it or distributing door hangers with information – know that the people you’re helping appreciate your outreach and you’re helping people feel connected. You’re also staying true to the health department’s suggestion of social distancing.

Look for opportunities that are limited in size. Organizations know how important of a role they play in minimizing the spread of the disease. If you are committed to volunteering with others, look for a group size of 10 or less.

Stay home when you are sick. Of course, you should be doing all of the things to stay safe – handwashing, limiting exposure, etc. – but this one deserves a second shout out. If you are not feeling well, please stay home and get well. Thanks to people who think like you, there will be plenty of volunteers out there to help when needed.”
