COVID-19 Update on Volunteering

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Community Action Partnership of Ramsey & Washington Counties. Due to COVID-19 and the health and safety of our volunteers, staff, participants, and communities, all of our volunteer opportunities and activities are suspended until further notice.

At Community Action, we deeply value our volunteers. We are committed to the safety and well-being of our communities. The COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving, and we are taking the appropriate precautions based on the information from the Minnesota Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control. 

We greatly appreciate your understanding and thank you for your cooperation. We will continue to provide updates as it becomes available. Please check back for updates on volunteer opportunities and activities.
