Garrett Launches New COVID-19 Volunteer Portal

Garrett County has launched a COVID-19 volunteer portal that will help streamline local donations to the community effort against COVID-19.

The Garrett County Health Department has created a volunteer portal to help coordinate volunteer sign-ups as well as local donations of food, money, and masks. Included are donation drop-off locations, times, and contact information.

From the press release:

“We launched a survey at the end of March to gauge community needs, especially related to food insecurity, unemployment, and other vulnerabilities as well as how people are helping others,” said Shelley Argabrite, Chief Health Strategist for the Population Health, Innovation & Informatics Unit at the Health Department.

“In less than 24 hours we received over 1,000 responses. From the survey data, we built the volunteer portal to address the main concerns. We listened to your feedback and are responding with a streamlined way to organize volunteers.”
