Between the new reality of online-classes and cancelled extracurriculars, students are developing an unbalanced ratio of more time on their hands and less to do. However, the restricted access to in-person volunteer opportunities doesn’t mean you can’t give back, and during these trying times, local nonprofits are in need of help more than ever. Whether you're a writer, builder, crafter, listener, teacher, or communicator, there are many organizations you can work with to give back to the community and be productive with your time. Additionally, depending on each organization’s policy and your personal level of comfort with in-person help, there are varying levels of interaction you can engage in. Opportunities featured in this article, along with thousands of others personalized to your interests, can be found on Sharecharlotte.org and Volunteermatch.org. And don’t be afraid to get creative and come up with your own ideas of ways to get involved and give back!
With our current situation restricting access to in-person volunteer opportunities, organizations have adapted and come up with ways for service interactions to be just as impactful via virtual meetings.
Of course, organizations are gladly accepting cash, food, and supply donations.
