West Michigan is coming together to help meet community needs during COVID-19, and the Heart of West Michigan United Way Volunteer Center is helping to organize and promote the effort.
Since March, over 300 people have signed up to volunteer their time to support COVID-19 response efforts. Volunteers are doing a wide range of things, including sewing & donating masks, distributing food, and transporting supplies.
People can visit VolunteerGR.org to view current needs, including projects they can do at home. For example, people have been creating and sending videos and art projects to patients at Emmanuel Hospice.
If you have certifications or trade-skills and would like to volunteer your services, HWMUW can match you with a local agency that could utilize them.
