Keep in mind that if you want to help healthcare workers dealing with coronavirus on the front lines, the best thing to do is STAY HOME to help flatten the curve!
If you are want and are able to do more, below are some great ideas.
Direct Relief coordinates with public health authorities, nonprofit organizations and businesses worldwide to provide personal protective equipment and essential medical items to health workers responding to coronavirus (COVID-19).
Send masks to healthcare workers without leaving your house.
Sponsor a face mask for $8. Masks will be donated to first responders and medical professionals in need.
Donate today to feed the brave healthcare professional working tirelessly to fight COVID-19 and support local restaurants and their employees by doing so. Organized by a family of young people striving to make a difference in their communities.
Pizza vs. Pandemic feeds front line care workers across the nation by coordinating large orders with independent pizzerias.You can support both the healthcare workers and small businesses with your donations.
Volunteer your time to help the Red Cross do their lifesaving work. Opportunities available for blood donation and delivery support, disaster response and relief, and virtual relief efforts.
Sign the petition to forgive student loan debt for doctors, nurses, and health professionals. In the next rescue/stimulus bill, Congress should include loan forgiveness for all health professionals because they are doing heroic and selfless service to our country. After World War II, Congress thanked our soldiers by passing the GI Bill so that they could get a college education. This would be the same.
Many need financial assistance during this pandemic including healthcare workers. Find these people and donate – this page is dedicated entirely to COVID-19 cases. You can search for specific situations. For example, almost 3000 results came up when I searched for “nurse with covid-19”.
