COVID-19 COMMUNITY RESPONSE
Support for not-for-profits
On your side
You don't have to do it alone. With the backbone support of your local volunteer centre, your not-for-profit organization can shine bright during these challenging times.
Through our communications for staff and board members of the social purpose sector, you'll hear about opportunities to recruit volunteers, learn and adapt, and connect meaningfully with the community.

Our COVID-19 Projects
Here are a few of our major projects that are supporting the pandemic response and recovery by engaging volunteers.
The Peel Mobilization of Volunteers Emergency System is our means of quickly deploying skilled volunteers to where they are most needed.
Continuum of Care
Working with several of our member organizations, we are coordinating activities to get food and essentials to the most vulnerable in our community.
Isolation to Connection
COVID-19 has exacerbated the issue of social isolation. We work with community service organizations on reaching out to isolated seniors in Peel.
We aim to remove barriers to make volunteerism more accessible to people with different abilities because volunteering is for anyone
and all efforts are needed.
This work would not be possible without our generous supporters who value the importance of volunteers to the COVID-19 recovery.
