United Way, ServErie and Erie County launch COVID-19 Volunteer Response Effort

Thursday Mar 26th, 2020

COVID Volunteer Logo Lock Up

Volunteer-dependent organizations in Erie County are running low on volunteers. That’s why United Way has partnered with Erie County Government and ServErie to connect interested individuals with available volunteer opportunities in response to the COVID-19 pandemic through the PA 211 Helpline website

Healthy individuals interested in volunteering can now visit to complete a brief questionnaire. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, organizers kindly ask that high risk volunteers stay home to reduce the spread of disease and protect their own health as well as the health of our community.

ServErie will be using collected information to make the appropriate matches. In addition, the Erie County Department of Health will work to provide guidance regarding appropriate safety protocols.  

Agencies in need of volunteers are also encouraged to visit to submit their information. They will then be connected with appropriate volunteers by ServErie.

“We are a resilient community, one that takes care of its neighbors, so please visit if you are individual interested in volunteering or if you are an organization in need of volunteers,” said Mike Jaruszewicz, United Way’s Vice President of Community Impact.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: County Executive Kathy Dahlkemper’s Stay-at-Home order does not apply to volunteers working for life-sustaining businesses and organizations.
