University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign COVID-19 Response
In a time of uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 and everyone’s need to follow CDC and Department of Public Health guidelines to limit the spread of the disease, volunteers can still remain connected their communities and what they need. As you peruse CUVolunteer in search of volunteer opportunities, please extend your search to agency websites to learn more about how their operations may currently be impacted by changing health concerns, and to learn if they are presently accepting volunteers. Consider signing up for their digital newsletters, or opt into any ways they advertise how people can volunteer virtually or donate supplies or funds to help them continue the sensitive work they do. Please be aware that some volunteer opportunities may have been posted on CUVolunteer before the start of this pandemic and therefore plans and needs may have changed for these organizations, but they may not have had a chance to come to CUVolunteer to remove or reschedule these posted opportunities.
