Volunteer Opportunities in Seattle

Check out our holiday volunteer opportunities!

Safe volunteer opportunities during your “stay-at-home” period

We are working closely with other community-based organizations to share their most immediate needs during the COVID-19 crisis—from online volunteering to phone banking, we list the latest needs from the community.

Can’t volunteer at this time? You can support our efforts to help people enduring the effects of the coronavirus by donating to the Community Relief Fund.

Are you a nonprofit with volunteer or in-kind needs as a result of COVID-19? Post those needs here: volunteer.uwkc.org/volunteer-response-covid-19/
