Volunteering during COVID
I’m currently a senior in highschool and I’m looking for volunteering hours to fill up my college applications. I used to volunteer at a nursing home but now it’s closed due to COVID. I live near Houston and I was wondering if anyone knew of any opportunities. It can be either online or in person. I don’t have anything specifically in mind but if it is something related to the medical field it would help a lot!

How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
I don't live in the US but you should really try helping out your community in times like this. I live in India where covid-19 cases are pretty high and I still managed to get some volunteering done in my community (raised money and helped out people with necessities with low income backgrounds). This might not be a big one but really shows colleges the connection who have with community and what you would do for them.
