4 Productive Ways to Help Your Community From Home During Coronavirus
4 Ways to Help Your Community From Home Amid Pandemic
With hundreds of thousands of confirmed cases and thousands of deaths attributed to the coronavirus pandemic, the United States is considered as the country hardest hit by the global contagion.
As states issue stay-at-home orders to residents to minimize social interactions that may lead to the further spread of the highly contagious disease, many businesses have also closed shop while schools adopt a distance-learning strategy to keep kids safe from the virus.
Health experts recommend that you stay at home and maintain social distancing when you need to go outdoors to protect yourself from possible infection.
However, even when isolated from their communities, people can still find ways to help each other during this challenging time.
4 Ways of Helping Your Community from Home
- Start group chats with your neighbors.
While people need to be at least an arm’s length away from each other during the pandemic, you can still stay connected with the people around you and keep tabs of what your community needs through online chat. This way, you can look out for each other and help even though you can’t physically interact with others.
- Move your book or wellness club online.
Find productive ways to make use of your time while the community abides by the authorities’ stay-at-home order. You can get your friends to join a book club, check out a book from an online provider that’s giving free access to their library of digital books during the pandemic, and discuss your thoughts about your chosen book via video chat. You can also hold a wellness session online and work out with other members of the community.
- Help out frontliners.
Frontliners working at emergency and health care facilities are likely to suffer from fatigue as they work tirelessly, managing patients to the best of their abilities. Get the neighbors to cook something delicious and send the food to hospitals, fire stations, and police stations to virtually pat these frontliners on the back for doing a good job. In some countries, people spend their downtime making do-it-yourself (DIY) protective gear such as face shields for frontliners. Fashion designers have also begun to use their expertise in crafting and donating protective suits for medical workers. See if you can do anything similar with your time.
You may want to donate cash to charitable organizations that are affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. If you can campaign for the causes these nonprofits support through social media to create a buzz, that would also be awesome.
Cash-Strapped Breast Cancer Patients Need Your Help
COVID-19 affects all people, but the most vulnerable are the elderly and the sick who have weakened immune systems.
Breast cancer patients are among those who need special care and attention at this time. Unfortunately, many of these patients lack the financial resources to pay for the high cost of their hospitalization and treatment. They badly need help.
You can make a world of difference in their lives by simply donating your extra vehicle to Breast Cancer Car Donations. We’ll auction off your donation to provide funding for our IRS-certified 501(c)3 non-profit partners. These nonprofits provide comprehensive breast health services to all needy individuals. They provide cash-strapped breast cancer patients with easy access to medical facilities where they can undergo full treatment. They also offer free breast cancer screening as well as other breast cancer prevention and education services.
We accept an extensive range of vehicle types that can be donated to us.
We’ll pick up and tow your vehicle at zero cost to you wherever you’re located in the United States.
Furthermore, your charitable contribution will entitle you to receive a top tax deduction in the next tax season.
