Ways You Can Help!

  1. Volunteer Opportunities
  • Hampshire County Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) RecruitmentImage of Hampshire County Medical Reserve Corp Logo

    • The Hampshire County MRC is a national volunteer program dedicated to building strong, healthy and prepared communities. MRC has more than 800 trained volunteers with medical and non-medical experience. As the Northampton and Amherst vaccination clinics are being prepared, there is a more urgent need for volunteers to help with dispensing efforts. This program is managed by the Department of Public Health to identify local volunteers who can be contacted when needed. In order to be a volunteer, you must register using an online system called, MA Responds. A background check will be conducted.  

      • MRC volunteers are typically used for the following events:
        • Annual flu clinics
        • Staffing the emergency shelters
        • Assisting with an EDS (Emergency Dispensing Site)
        • Staffing a warming center or cooling center (during extreme weather conditions)
        • Providing first aid at local community events

Register today to be a volunteer responder by either visiting www.maresponds.org or clicking on the image linked below.  


  • When it asks you to select a unit, you’ll find the Hampshire County MRC listed under "Region 1"
  • You are required to complete a background check (CORI/SORI) before you can volunteer as an MRC member.
  • Mail CORI to: Loren Davine, PO Box 241, Easthampton, MA 01027
