Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic, the Orange County Emergency Volunteer Center (EVC) has been activated to support immediate volunteer needs, including hands-on and virtual opportunities during this disaster.
ABOUT THIS VIRTUAL PROJECT:
During the coronavirus pandemic volunteers are needed to assemble hygiene kits from the safety of your own home as Virtual Volunteers. The first hygiene you make will be distributed to anyone visiting our walk in resource center in Fullerton. We currently see anywhere between 30 and 80 households a day visiting the HUB. Thank you for supporting our community's most vulnerable residents during these difficult times!
You can be a bit creative with the items that you use; however, keep in mind that these bags may be carried around everywhere and thus should not be too heavy. Items that are perfect for these care bags are listed below, but you can be creative and choose what you want to include:
Socks or beanie caps
Tuna (pop-top canned meat) and crackers
Soft granola or cereal bar
Fruit snack or applesauce cup
Crackers with peanut butter or cheese
Gift certificate to fast food
Hand wipes & hand sanitizer
Comb or small brush
Pack of Kleenex
Toothbrush and toothpaste
Mints, cough drops or gum
Now you are ready to assemble! Host a 'virtual assembling event' with friends and/or coworkers on video conferencing or do it at home with your children. Tip: hotel shampoos & soaps from trips are perfect for bags. Remember to pack the items in a sturdy bag, we recommend using plastic gallon re-sealable bags or cinch sacks.
This information is also posted on our Pathways website at https://www.pohoc.org/remote-volunteering/.
