COVID19 Response Volunteers

The Volunteer Center is coordinating volunteers for our own senior programs and mental health support programs to distribute food to people who are in vulnerable populations and unable to go shopping.
We are also referring volunteers to community organizations and services provided by the County of Santa Cruz to meet community needs including new shelters for unhoused people in North and South County.
By expressing interest in this project you will be added to our list of COVID 19 response volunteers and will receive email and/or phone updates about volunteer needs as they arise. We may need to interview you before referring you to some projects. Our goal is always to match volunteers with the program that is in need of volunteers AND that fits with your skills and interests.
