Volunteering at the Y Amid the Pandemic


Provide Supplies

How Can You Volunteer at the YMCA Las Vegas During COVID19

One of the best ways to support local volunteer organizations and health-based organizations, including the Y, is through providing supplies. You can donate masks at the YMCA Las Vegas to protect members and other volunteers. You can also bring:

  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Liquid hand soap
  • Soap dispensing machines
  • Gloves
  • Bandages
  • Toiletries and hygiene products
  • Diapers

Mental Health Support

During a crisis, many people are in distress and need support. The lack of jobs, business and uncertainty about the COVID-19 pandemic creates unhealthy stress. What’s more, isolation due to the pandemic has increased anxiety and depression among people. Mental health support is an excellent way to volunteer your services through the YMCA Las Vegas.

You can provide peace, calm and sound reasoning to hundreds of people with no one to turn to. You can talk to and listen to people on the phone to help them through these challenging times. In your service, you’ll also feel less isolated and more connected to the Las Vegas community.

Local Food Banks

Join the YMCA Las Vegas and mobilize other volunteers to donate food to local food banks. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected thousands of people of various economic backgrounds and affected their ability to afford meals. Helping a local food bank is a great way to ensure that everyone around you is well fed. You can also join the local food bank volunteers to sort through food donations, repackage them and prepare them for distribution to those in need.

Donate Blood

Providing a blood donation at a blood drive clinic or hospital is a great way to help those around you. Every day, hundreds of patients need blood due to accidents and illnesses that threaten their lives. When you contribute to a blood bank, you ensure that medical practitioners save a life.
