A volunteer is described as someone who willingly undertakes a service to others in the community. Now, more than ever, we at MRWG are grateful for those who are dedicating their time to neighbors in need. National Volunteer Week begins on April 19 and with social distancing in place, here are a few things you can do to can lend a hand while safely at home.
1. Walk like a Stormwater Trooper

The sun and fresh air makes walking a primary source of activity during these closures. While on your walks, stay six feet away from others and be stormwater savvy by picking up any trash you see on the ground. A little effort to prevent pollution from entering our watershed goes a long way!
2. Stick to the tap!
As we all now know, our drinking water is perfectly safe for consumption! This means we can spend less money on large bundles of plastic water bottles. Opting not to buy plastic water bottles can have a great impact on our environment and our watershed by preventing plastic pollution. Volunteer your time by collecting plastic water bottles around the house to recycle!

3. Donate where you can!
We can still lend a hand by donating! The Boys and Girls Clubs of America and High Desert Second Chance are locally based and are accepting donations to help fund their work to help feed kids and families who have been affected by COVID-19.
The best thing we can do right now to lend a helping hand is to stay home. We are all in this together, and we will get through it!
