VO is recruiting and deploying volunteers to respond to the volunteer needs specific to COVID-19 in Ottawa, Prescott-Russell, Lanark County and Renfrew County while ensuring proper screening and training protocals to safeguard the health of those volunteering and those they are assisting. Please see the intake portals for volunteers, for members, and for other agencies on our hompage. VO’s COVID 19 volunteer deployment program is supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund and the Ottawa Community Foundation.
The unexpected hardships of 2020 have made it difficult for non-profits and charities to support community needs, as the number of people needing help continues to increase while their financial resources decrease. But you can help!
Even a small donation can help an organization more than you know, as this holiday season will be challenging for many. Anything you can do to support, whether it be through a monetary donation or volunteering your time, will be greatly appreciated!
Unsure which charity to support? Our membership directory will link you directly to hundreds of local organizations who need your support.
Thank you for being the reason the holiday spirit is alive this season!
