I felt obligated to attend because the volunteer coordinator told me my presence was critical for people experiencing homelessness. When I arrived, many of the safety precautions I was told about were not in place. I made direct contact with sick people and I think the organization could have functioned perfectly fine without my presence. I understand it's really hard for nonprofits to function right now with a limited volunteer supply, but I also think it's unfair to pressure hesitant volunteers into putting themselves at risk.
This was an amazing way to stay in touch with our community’s elderly in a low-risk environment!
