HandsOn Sacramento has partnered with some agencies in offering virtual volunteer opportunities as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These virtual volunteer opportunities follow COVID-19 related safety guidelines and promote volunteering on your own time and can be done in your own home. Wherever you are, volunteering for the community is accessible. While these opportunities offer a virtual way to volunteer, your efforts will continue to support our community.

If you know of any virtual volunteer opportunities that need to be highlighted on this page, please email Mika Guevarra at

Sew Fidget Blankets for the Sacramento Public Library

Volunteers are invited to create a Fidget Blanket—a lap-size blanket that provides sensory and tactile stimulation—to those with anxiety and restless hands, including people living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. These blankets are equipped with “fidget” objects such as buttons, ribbons, zippers, rings, buckles, and pockets for the user to touch and play with. Volunteers must have access to a sewing machine and sewing notions. A Fidget Blanket Kit with instructions will be provided. For more information, contact Katie Ball, Special Projects Associate,, 916-264-2893.
