Springtime is for Volunteering!..... Actually, anytime is for volunteering.
With schools now beginning to open, we still continue to manage many of the same volunteer opportunities that we have always offered. Most, however, until further notice, remain virtual. Since the end of March 2020, the primary focus for this department was in two areas:
- Food for Students (FFS)
- Virtual Tutors
Food for Students
The FFS program, with the help of hundreds of community volunteers, has distributed more than 1,000,000 meals! Without the help of volunteers and staff, we would not have been able to feed children while the school buildings were closed. Our volunteers have been instrumental in the success of the food program, and our plan is to continue the process until next fall. Currently, we are distributing food boxes on Wednesdays, only. The boxes will include a 5-7 day supply of meals. As we transition into summer, the plan will be to continue with weekly boxes. If you are interested in covering any of the food sites, both now and this summer, please email the volunteer department.
The Virtual Volunteer Tutoring Program is a new addition to the Volunteer Department. While volunteers are still unable to meet with students or go inside the schools, they can sign up to be a virtual tutor. The process is as follows:
- Teachers create a request for Virtual Volunteer tutors.
- Volunteers can review the tutor needs and then register as a Virtual Tutor based on the teachers' requests.
Please take a few minutes to review our website and follow the process to be a CHCCS Virtual Volunteer. We look forward to working with each of you, and thank you for your willingness to serve the CHCCS community. If you have any questions, please email us at email@example.com. Please be safe and healthy.
