Social distancing may be keeping us apart but our connection to community has, in many ways, never been stronger. From the many stories of kindness and generosity, we know that together, we can emerge more resilient out of this difficult time.
At VolunteerMatch, every day we’re inspired by incredible stories of people giving their time to help others. Each one of us has the power to show up and be of service to others who need our help. This is especially important now as so many of our neighbors and friends need our support.
In the US alone, today, over 220,000 volunteers are currently needed for local opportunities related to COVID-19 — and over 700,000 volunteers are needed to help through virtual volunteering.
Individuals and teams are heeding the call to help, and we're sharing their stories—to help connect, encourage and inspire each of us to start where we are and do some good.
Did something good, or want to share something good? Share your own story — and the stories of those who inspire you. Each one of us has the power to be a part of making a big impact for people and causes in need. We’d love to hear your inspiring stories.
