AmeriCorps members serving across Virginia have quickly shifted gears due to the growing COVID-19 pandemic. Previously providing tutoring, job readiness assistance, and other vital services in communities, members have jumped into action helping to serve meals to students, sort donations, and much more. One example of this dedication to service is in Danville, where members with Dan River Year AmeriCorps have been serving at God’s Storehouse to pack children’s food bags for distribution. Some members also assisted in stuffing “Stimulus Care Packages” for nursing homes to stimulate their minds during the shutdown.
Thank you to all of our amazing AmeriCorps members who, separated from their families and loved ones, are continuing to serve others during this challenging time.
