How Can You Help?
Discover how you can volunteer your time, talents, or treasures to help those affected by COVID-19.
Volunteer your time by being a caller, mask maker, or a partner.
Can you sew? You can save lives! One of the growing needs in our community is the need for masks for our nurses and healthcare workers. Many healthcare facilities do not have enough personal protective equipment for one shift, let alone a COVID-19 outbreak.
Supplies which are dropped off at the church will be provided to our partners to distribute them into those who have needs in the community. You can sign up to deliver supplies to people in need by partnering with our sister organizations. If you want to serve in this capacity, determine the closest organization and connect with them in order to serve.
