During this time we have to balance our responsibility to "flatten the curve" of the spread of the virus with our desire to help our neighbors who have lost income because of cancellations, closures and postponements.
We reached out to all the local charities we support and asked, "how can we help?" Those that support families in need have depleted supplies and could use help restocking their shelves. Unfortunately, most non-profits are discouraging people from bringing in donations to reduce the spread of the virus. The best way we can support their efforts is to make a financial contribution.
The money collected will go to local charities like NFCC, HomeStretch and CDA so they can give assistance to the families that need extra help during this time or it will provide meals for our first responders and healthcare workers. Please consider making a contribution to support our neighbors.
Another way to help is buying local. Order take out from your favorite restaurants, buy gift cards and do some advanced holiday shopping online.
There is tons of news about the virus and its impact to our daily lives. Here are a few resources for local and national updates:
