What a year this has been. The Coronavirus Pandemic has terrorized Michigan. Some have been sick and have lost family members. Many have been laid off work and are still unemployed. Sadly, with everything going on, it is likely that many homeless veterans, poor seniors, and struggling families will go without a Christmas. Your neighbors desperately need your help. You can give holidays meals, warm winter clothing, and gifts to those that would otherwise have nothing.
We also wanted to let you know that we are taking every step necessary to prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19). The safety and health of our volunteers, clients, donors, community partners, and employees is of utmost importance to Volunteers of America Michigan.
Many of you still want to help, and YOU CAN from the comfort and safety of your own home.
Even though our in-person volunteer opportunities are currently on hold, we still have ways you can help others from the safety of your home!
You can help our seniors, veterans and frontline heroes let them know you are thinking of them during these uncertain times.
Brighten their day by creating a card, writing a letter, sending an email, having a child draw a picture...it is up to you! Take a picture, email it over to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be sure to share them all with them!
We are in an unprecedented time, and none of us know how long this pandemic will last...Let's come together and keep positivity at the forefront! We appreciate you taking the time to brighten someone else's day!
