2 Ways to Volunteer From a Distance

April 30, 2020  |  Published in Agency News, COVID 19 Response, Volunteers

We’ve had a lot of people asking us what they can do to help during this pandemic. 

While we aren’t currently allowing any volunteers in the building, there are two ways you can help from home! 

You and your family can build “Bye Bye Bags” These bags are given to our families to take home each day, to ensure that our children have something to eat before they make it back to school the next day. And right now, we’re including them in our Vogel Eats packages as we deliver to over 150 families daily. We are always accepting donations of these bags, and they are a great way for groups to get together and build something for our cause. The video below gives some tips on what you can include in these bags.

 

The second option would be to send us a video of you or a a family member reading a children’s book. Our Virtual Volunteer Story Time is seen by the kids in their classrooms each Wednesday. We’ve had a lot of great submissions so far, just like the one below of the Allstate team reading Goodnight Moon. Please email volunteers@vogelalcove.org for information about how to send us these videos, or click here for instructions and tips.
