It is important to volunteers, community organizations, and Volunteer Wyoming that we all take the necessary precautions when volunteering. We value that individuals want to volunteer in this time of need to ensure that the most vulnerable in our community continue to receive necessary services, however, personal health and safety are always of primary importance. If you are feeling ill or exhibiting symptoms, please consider way to volunteer virtually or by phone to limit the potential for viral transmission. We encourage you to view the CDC recommendations for age limits and health status when considering volunteering.
AARP Community Connections, a new online platform launched by AARP Innovation Labs this month, allows users to organize and find local volunteer groups to help pick up groceries, provide financial assistance or lend emotional support to neighbors, friends and loved ones.
