Boston Cares, a New England volunteering organization, has partnered with the City of Boston and Boston Public Schools to centralize volunteer recruitment and coordinate new efforts meeting the city’s evolving needs during the global pandemic.
Volunteering opportunities to help communities impacted by the coronavirus will be listed and regularly updated on the Boston Cares website.
You’ve been asking how to help – thank you! We are partnering with @CityOfBoston to help recruit and coordinate #volunteers during #COVID19. Sign up to help distribute important printed information around neighborhoods (at a safe distance) Saturday – https://t.co/6hzO0cCEMm

To sign up for a position, all of which are open to the public, you can create an account and then click on one of the yellow titles to be taken to another site. There, you can sign up for specific dates and times.
When it comes to volunteering, officials are asking anyone who has felt ill within the past 24 hours or has been exposed to COVID-19 not to sign up for a project.
As a further precaution, the website details that all opportunities will be set up with social distancing strategies, hand sanitizer and minimal interaction with residents.
