Covid-19 spreads through droplets, but kindness can spread through connecting. Corona Connects is making it easy for volunteers to find and connect with organizations that need their help. Stuck at home, thousands of college students and other adults are finding themselves with extra time on their hands and they want to help – but aren’t sure how they can. This website enables them to seamlessly find an opportunity that fits their interest and schedule.
How We Got Started
We're a team of college students from across the US trying to make volunteering during this pandemic easy. As our schools went virtual, we found ourselves with a strong desire to help and plenty of time to do so, but we didn’t know where to start. We knew there was an unprecedented level of need, yet struggled to identify and connect with organizations in need of volunteers. We built Corona Connects to remove that barrier and make it easy for people to help their communities. Built with the volunteer in mind, Corona Connects seamlessly matches people with time on their hands to organizations needing their help, taking into consideration volunteers' preferences and availability.
