VIRTUAL URGENT NEED- Making First Aid Kits for Shelter Families
Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic, the Orange County Emergency Volunteer Center (EVC) has been activated to support immediate volunteer needs, including hands-on and virtual opportunities during this disaster.
ABOUT THIS VIRTUAL PROJECT:
During the coronavirus pandemic volunteers are needed to assemble first aid kits and you can help from the safety of your own home as Virtual Volunteers. The first aid kits you make will be distributed to anyone visiting our walk in resource center in Fullerton. We call the location The HUB of Hope and is open to the public M-F between 1-4pm to pick up food and learn about resources. We currently see anywhere between 30 and 100 households a day visiting the HUB. As you can see, we assist a lot of people. Thank you so much for your help!
