COVID-19 Update: STLVolunteer Volunteer Opportunities
COVID-19 Update: Until further notice, we are deferring judgment for all volunteer needs and projects to our nonprofit, school and corporate partners. We’ve been in contact with all of them and will update our volunteer calendar, programs, and needs of our community as requested. We encourage you to contact the organization directly to confirm if a volunteer project is still happening or to let them know you will not be in attendance. And, we are asking any volunteers or volunteer family members that may have been exposed to COVID-19 or who are not feeling well to NOT volunteer with any organization for at least 14-days.
