Volunteers Needed to Support Check-in At Vaccine Clinics
Ongoing through April
Volunteers are needed to support the smooth running of the Mass Vaccine Clinic happening in our community. As a volunteer you will be asked to help with confirming that community members have an appointment, bringing supplies to various stations, and completing paperwork with community members before they receive the COVID-19 vaccine. We have an immediate need for volunteers to staff stations.
Helping People. Period- Supply Drive
Now - April 29th at participating locations
Many individuals living in poverty are unable to access the basic products required to manage their menstrual health and this negatively impacts their ability to participate in daily activities.Together, we can ensure that all individuals have the sanitary access they need to maintain dignity and remain connected to daily life. Join us in honor of International Women's Month, in collecting sanitary products to be distributed to our houseless population by the Downtown Streets Team.

As a caller you will build a relationship with a senior, help them navigate the resources that might be most helpful for them and serve as a crucial friendly voice for what might be an otherwise lonely day. RSVP for an orientation to determine if this is the right volunteer fit for you.
