Strategies for adapting programs and purposefully engaging employees
April is Volunteer Month, but with the COVID-19 pandemic cancelling many in-person/community volunteer opportunities, there are other ways to make an impact - virtually and remotely - during this time of social distancing. How do we continue to support the operation of nonprofit organizations - balancing their needs, your resources and current limitations imposed on us by COVID-19?
Our partners at Business Volunteers Maryland (BVM) have been connecting volunteers with community needs for eighteen years. Those community needs have grown exponentially over the past month as social distancing guidelines seemingly make it much harder for our Baltimore neighbors to do what they’ve always done. Fortunately, where there’s a will, there’s always a way, and BVM is maintaining a web page with up-to-the-minute information on what you can do.
