Donate, remote service
Snohomish County organizations that need help
Providence Institute for a Healthier Community has put together a Snohomish County COVID-19 needs hub to discover local organizations that need help.
Blood donation is an essential activity and encouraged activity. In order to meet social distancing recommendations and ensure the best and safest experience possible, Bloodworks Northwest is accepting scheduled appointments only. It’s important for donors to make future appointments now to ensure blood stays available in our community as we weather this pandemic together. Learn more.
More information on donating blood in crisis and how you can help.
Northshore School District
AVID classes prepare students who desire to go to college and are from groups traditionally underrepresented in higher education to be college-ready. AVID Tutors will work together with the teacher and students via Zoom for one hour, once a week, beginning in November. AVID Tutors will facilitate discussions with small groups of students in breakout rooms, but will not be asked to grade them in this remote setting. Instead, a brief communication about how it went will be important for teachers working with you.
Contact Carol Anderssohn (NCHS LC Paraeducator & Campus Volunteer Coordinator) to sign up: email@example.com
