Dear Community Partners,
In response to the public health interest that COVID-19 has garnered, George Mason, along with many other universities in the region, has suspended our campus activities for the remainder of the semester and moved to online instruction. Students, faculty and staff are currently navigating this move and in the SAIL office we know that this action has a tremendous impact on you as you work to serve the communities around us. We understand that many of you depend on our students as volunteers during the school year and this uncertain time is just as stressful.
Our friends over at Volunteer Fairfax are working diligently to share opportunities and donation requests from organizations across Northern Virginia. If you know of an agency that has needs during this COVID-19 emergency, please have them complete this brief Volunteer Opportunities Survey to help promote the opportunity.
As we adjust to this temporary reality, we want to share some important tips and strategies that may be useful for you.
Reach out to faculty and student volunteers.
Online or remote opportunities
As an office, we are committed to supporting our faculty, students and community partners during this unique time, we will be sure to keep you updated with any developments and post other relevant information on our website.
We’ve shared some resources and tips for our faculty on our website as well, please feel free to view here.
Thank you for working with our students and faculty in this confusing time. Mason looks forward to continuing to work with you as we move through this.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
