COVID-19 Crisis: A Call for Local Volunteers
March 23, 2020–
When Jordyan Mueller of Little Falls started the Little Falls Volunteer Corps (LFVC) months ago, the mission of that group was to replenish and strengthen the ranks of volunteers for the many awesome festivals and events in Little Falls. However, as the world moves through the uncharted territory that is the COVID-19 pandemic, the Little Falls Volunteer Corps (LFVC) is now pivoting and working to coordinate with local organizations to provide volunteer support where it is most needed.
If you are interested in volunteering your time to help those in the community who may be more vulnerable to the virus or its trickle-down effects, the form below has been created to help capture your credentials and areas of need you may be most fit to serve:
Submission of this form means you consent to providing your contact information to LFVC for that purpose and authorize it to be shared with local entities. You reserve the right to choose which volunteer opportunities are best suited for you regardless of need. Please know that every precaution is being taken to keep volunteers safe — the social distancing rules will be enforced and safety items (gloves) and training will be provided. For questions, please contact: LFVolunteerCorps@gmail.com
As Mayor Mark Blask puts it, “Adjusting to this new normal is challenging. (But we) remember, even though we aren’t seeing much of each other right now that doesn’t mean we aren’t connected. Together, we get through this.”
