As a new strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) swept through the world in 2020, preparedness plans, masking policies and more public policy changed just as quickly. WVXU has covered the pandemic's impact on the Tri-State from the very beginning, when on March 3, 2020, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine barred spectators from attending the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus over concerns about the virus, even though Ohio had yet to confirm a single case of COVID-19.

Like many industries, nonprofits are feeling the economic pinch caused by the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. But beyond money woes, local organizations are also working to let potential volunteers and board members know there are safe ways to join up.

Cincinnati Cares, which assists nonprofits in a variety of ways, including in the matching of potential board members and volunteers, is launching a variety of opportunities over the next several weeks.

On Cincinnati Edition, we are joined by Cincinnati Cares CEO Doug Bolton; Center for Independent Living Options Director Rob Ferenstein; and Bethany Doverspike, Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park Director of Institutional Giving about the upcoming events, which can be found here.

Ferenstein worked with Cincinnati Cares to bring in a new board member while Doverspike joined the board of the Recovery Center of Hamilton County through the program.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
