During this time DOVIA Sacramento encourages you to remain in contact with your volunteers, especially if your organization is not able to operate. Recognize your volunteers virtually. Share the list of resources with them and encourage those who can to volunteer in whatever way they feel safe.
Please encourage your volunteers to fill out the 2020 Census forms, either online or by mail. Being counted is even more important as we recover from the COVID-19 outbreak.
