You can do good, right where you are and completely safely. Volunteer work is needed now more than ever, and volunteering is a great way to feel connected in a world of social distancing.
If you're an adult or teen who would like to give your time and talents to help others, there are remote and web-based ways to do just that. Library staff who keep tabs on volunteerism have rounded up opportunities for community members like you to help a variety of organizations, here in Lake County and elsewhere.
Adult volunteers (ages 18 and up) can check out the library's guide to organizations and opportunities here. If you'd like your contribution to be specific to the Covid-19 pandemic, consider these options.
If you're in grades 7–12, give back and earn service hours; get started here.
If you need help of any kind during this extraordinary time, please begin here.
To everyone, stay safe and be well.
