The Greater Mankato Area United Way says several agencies continue to be in critical need of volunteers. They know many people are unable to help because of restrictions and safety; they ask those who can safely volunteer to consider getting involved.


As of today, organizations with critical volunteer needs include:

  • American Red Cross: Volunteer at blood drives (greeters, canteen helpers and others needed)
  • ECHO Food Shelf: Transport, sort, package, deliver food
  • LSS Meals: Assemble meals, deliver meals to seniors
