(Gloucester Township, NJ) – As our community continues to battle the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, residents throughout Camden County have asked how they can support their friends and neighbors during this time of need. Today, the Camden County Department of Health and Human Services launched a new online volunteering portal to connect those residents with opportunities to support others in the coming weeks.
“Everybody has to do their part if we’re going to get through this unprecedented crisis,” said Freeholder Director Louis Cappelli, Jr. “We have been awe-struck by the number of inquiries coming to our offices asking for volunteer opportunities and ways to get involved. This new submission form will allow us to connect residents with other agencies or Camden County departments seeking volunteers in response to this crisis. If you are healthy and looking for a way to serve your community, now is the time to visit www.camdencounty.com and find out how you can help.”
Volunteers will be a critical part of the county’s response as the coronavirus crisis escalates. The Health Department is seeking nurses, EMTs, effective communicators and those with computer skills to join the COVID-19 response team. The Department of Health may also share volunteer information with partners like the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey who are developing their own volunteer base.
If you don’t have access to the internet, but still want to volunteer healthy residents interested in volunteering should contact (856) 374-6396. Medical personnel interested in volunteering should contact (856) 374-6141.
