- Apple has partnered with VolunteerMatch in Apple Maps.
- Volunteers can find opportunities in major cities and remote as well.
Apple has been adding a lot of new content to Apple Maps that provides guides from trusted sources on things like the best food, parks, and more to visit when you are in some major cities across the United States. Now, the company is trying to use its mapping service to match would-be volunteers with volunteer opportunities in their area.
As reported by CNET, Apple has partnered with VolunteerMatch to help volunteers find COVID-safe ways to give back to their communities.
If you open the Maps app on an iPhone or iPad and tap the search bar, you should see a collection called "Great Places to Volunteer" in the city closest to you that supports the feature.
For the Washington D.C. area, some of the organizations featured in the collection include the Capital Area Food Bank, the American Red Cross, and the Family & Youth Initiative.
Check out the Maps app on your iPhone or iPad to see the volunteer opportunities in areas closest to you.
