Cary, NC — As the reigns loosen on COVID-related restrictions, volunteering is a great way to start getting back into the community. There are even a few opportunities to lend a helping hand remotely, too.
Start with a Local Volunteer Center
Volunteers are a crucial support system for communities, neighbors and local organizations. Locally in Wake and Chatham counties, three volunteer centers have opportunities listed year-round:
- Hands On Triangle: The Triangle Nonprofit & Volunteer Leadership Center
- Activate Good: Volunteer Opportunities in the Triangle
- Chatham Connecting
To help outside the Triangle, there’s a comprehensive list of other volunteer centers throughout all of the North Carolina counties.
