How Can I Help My Community

Shop Small, Shop Local:

Reach out: Call your family, call your neighbors, call your friends and be a calm, friendly voice during this rough time.

Be Kind: Surprise someone with a bag of groceries on their porch. Pay for the car behind you’s coffee. Clear your neighbors sidewalk. Order someone flowers. Little actions make big impacts.

Help for Those with Compromised Immune Systems

Keep Calm. Stress and anxiety have been proven to weaken immune systems, so help them by keeping calm.

Dont Be Afraid To Ask For Help. Ask your loved ones and neighbors to get your medications, kitty litter, water, anything you may need in the next few weeks.

Facetime, Phone Call, Email. Connect virtually with your loved ones. Isolation does not have to be lonely! Not tech savvy? Ask them to meet outside your window like this man does for his father.
