During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Helping in the community during a time of crisis - we are organizing mobile food distributions throughout Lee County to help those that may become food insecure during this crisis. We meet at the Center of Hope at 2400 Edison Avenue, load the prepacked bags onto the vehicle, then drive to the prearranged location. We park the vehicle and distribute the food bags to the people that come for food until we run out. Then we return to the Center of Hope. Times vary by day - please see our Volunteer Portal for details at https://www.cervistech.com/acts/console.php?console_id=0028&console_type=event
