Activate Good Presents Virtual Projects for Volunteer Month

Holding a supply drive for families in need of hygiene or personal care items is just one way that individuals can volunteer during Activate Good's Virtual Volunteer-a-thon.

Activate Good, a nonprofit that mobilizes individuals to improve the community through volunteer service, is calling upon Triangle residents to sign up for volunteer opportunities to make an impact to our community virtually. As a member of the Points of Light Global Network, Activate Good celebrates Global Volunteer Month in April annually to highlight the individuals and organizations that are making a difference and meeting the needs of our community.

“This April, our goal is to mobilize talented volunteers to adopt and complete virtual volunteer projects — helping local causes doing critical work and saving time and resources — so those organizations can focus on other aspects of serving our community during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Amber Smith, executive director of Activate Good.

Virtual Volunteer-a-Thon opportunities include virtual volunteer projects, which include:

  • writing blogs about local causes and inspirational volunteer stories
  • transcribing or translating nonprofit documents
  • holding supply drives for families in need of hygiene or personal care items
  • recording video or audio clips of encouragement to cancer survivors

The month-long Virtual Volunteer-a-Thon is sponsored by Bank of America.

“We are pleased to support the Activate Good organization on its leadership’s commitment to Triangle community improvement through local volunteerism,” said Virginia Parker, Triangle market manager for Bank of America. “Nonprofits play a critical role in strengthening the overall economic health of our communities, and we are working to ensure they are able to help even more people.”

Interested individuals can view and sign up now for virtual volunteer opportunities at Virtual volunteer projects may be appropriate for individuals or small groups; some options will even be available for teens. Volunteers will be able to view a curated menu of impactful virtual volunteer projects, sign up for the projects they are interested in, and commit to completing their chosen projects between April 1 and 30.

To hear more details about each project and meet other volunteers who will be participating in April, Triangle residents can register to attend Activate Good’s Virtual Volunteer-a-Thon Kick Off event at noon Wednesday, March 24, via Zoom.
