Lend a Helping Hand
COVID-19 has brought the world to its knees; at the mercy of a pathogen that is 1/900th the width of a human hair. Now is a time, better than ever, to prove that we are strong. Our strength comes from supporting the courageous medical professionals who are risking their lives to protect us. We owe it to these professionals to practice social distancing. Many of our neighbors cannot risk stepping outside, even if it is just to buy essential items, because they have a compromised immunity. If you are willing to buy groceries and other items for neighbors who can’t, please click the green button. And if you have major health concerns that prevent you from stepping outside, please click the red button to be connected to volunteers who can help you.
Help us Recharge this Community!
- Do not interact with other people physically
- Spread positivity
- Virtually recognize and thank the doctors you know
- Sew PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)
- Donate to Local Food/Resource Drives (Blue Button)
- Buy Groceries for Others
In order to stop the spread of Covid-19, practicing social distancing and hunkering down is the best way you can help. However, staying at home is not stopping you from helping out our community. Here are ways you can contribute materials to those who need it.
