Volunteer Opportunities

Some food banks have lost upwards of 50% of volunteers and are in great need of volunteers to help pack and sort food. They are taking precautions to ensure volunteer safety.

Resources for State Employees

If you are facing a particularly hard time, a number of local, community-based organizations help folks meet needs, including navigating benefits, counseling, medical case management and some cash assistance.
