How to volunteer or how to donate items/food/money.

 If someone would like to volunteer their time or specific items (food, water, pens, equipment, etc), then please have them email volunteers@odessa-tx.gov. Someone will respond to them and tell them exactly what to do or where to drop off the donations.

 If someone is choosing to donate financially, please direct them to https://mchodessa.com/coronavirus/. It has the “How You Can Help” section, which includes a link to donate to the COVID-19 Foundation Fund. The donor can choose a preset amount or enter their own amount and change the designation to COVID 19 and leave in the comments section “Mass Vaccination” or something along those lines so we can track it.

It is simply a pre-registration tool that will speed up the process of administering the vaccine. While those community members that fall under the Phase 1B of the vaccination rollout are first priority, the pre-registration link is open to all.
