COVID-19 & Volunteering



To receive the most current information on volunteer needs in our Region during this pandemic please subscribe to the Volunteer Action Centre Weekly E-Newsletter. The recruitment for volunteers to assist in the formal response will be messaged here first. If you are able, you can support the most urgent needs in our community by donating to the United Way Waterloo Region Communities.

The connections we are experiencing indicating a desire to help community in this era of COVID 19 are heartwarming. Thank you for your interest. In Waterloo Region an impressive Pandemic Response Plan is being enacted. The plan was developed in anticipation of an outbreak such as we are experiencing. Now it is being implemented. Services across the full spectrum of community services are being addressed collectively. The analogy of this not being a sprint but a marathon is helpful and we ask your continued patience.
