Volunteer Prince William
As our communities face the unusual circumstances created by the coronavirus pandemic, many individuals would like to volunteer to help in some way. Volunteer Prince William is designated by Prince William County and the Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park to provide coordination of unaffiliated volunteers during emergency declarations. If you would like to be contacted to help during the COVID 19 outbreak, please register on our website at www.VolunteerPrinceWilliam.org.
When you are completing your registration form be sure to check the box that asks if you wish to receive a disaster notification.
If you are already registered as a volunteer on our Volunteer Prince William website, please log in to update your user data and check the box to indicate you wish to receive a disaster notification.
When we receive requests for volunteers in the greater Prince William area we will send emails out to those volunteers who have indicated they want to receive a disaster notification and will include instructions on what to do if you are interested in volunteering to help meet that request. It may be a bit of a process and may also include a liability waiver form.
If you have questions or need help registering, please call Bonnie Fulford at 571-292-5302. Thanks for wanting to help!
