Healthy individuals with some extra time on their hands are encouraged to volunteer or give back to their community. Local food banks and blood banks are accepting donations and/or volunteers during this crisis.
Please follow all recommended guidelines to reduce contact and/or the spread of COVID-19 while volunteering.
The San Diego Food Bank, San Diego County, Feeding San Diego, and Meals on Wheels are just some of the local food security volunteer options. Many of these organizations are accepting donations in addition to volunteers. Additionally, you may contact the San Diego Blood Bank to make an appointment to donate blood, or to volunteer.
For those looking to support the many nonprofit organizations providing vital services during this time, the San Diego Foundation has established the San Diego COVID-19 Community Response Fund to support charitable organizations in the community. 100% of your donation will go toward nonprofits in the region.
