As you visit our site, you will see that we are a vibrant organization offering many opportunities for people to live out their commitment to build community resilience. There are activities for both medical and non-medical volunteers to participate in support of their community.

The Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) was founded after President Bush’s 2002 State of the Union Address, in which he asked all Americans to volunteer in support of their country. MRC is a partner program of the Citizen Corps, a national network of volunteers dedicated to ensuring hometown security. There are currently 877 community-based MRC units with over 203,199 volunteers.

Volunteer to help emergency response efforts during COVID-19

What is the Cape Cod Medical Reserve Corps Doing During the COVID-19 Pandemic?

MRC volunteers are helping Relief Home Health Services, Inc. with covid testing at Whole Health Pharmacy in Hyannis, covid testing at the Barnstable Correctional facility, delivering groceries for the elderly and those at high risk of infection throughout the Cape, serving breakfast for homeless individuals at the Federated Church of Hyannis and Duffy Health Center, 3D printing and making face masks and, of course, picked up and delivered PPE donations for Cape Cod Healthcare. During this pandemic, MRC volunteers have dedicated time, skills, and effort to bring strong, healthy, prepared communities. They will continue to do so as the Cape gradually reopens.
