Utah consistently ranks as number one in the nation for volunteering efforts. Volunteering can help minimize impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic and northern Utah earthquake. Many organizations need help serving people in need and can accommodate the need for volunteers to remain safe. To ensure the safety of staff and other volunteers, please sign up in advance so the sponsoring organization is prepared. Anybody who feels sick, shows symptoms of COVID-19, or has been in close contact with another person who has tested positive for the virus should not leave their house to volunteer.
