Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Hospitals and healthcare centers are still facing shortages of PPE such as N95 masks and surgical masks. If you have some to spare, you can donate through organizations such as GetUsPPE and DonatePPE.
Computers: Many of us have to rely on Internet access from home, but not everyone has a personal computer. Organizations are being called on to donate laptops and tablets. Encourage your organization to take part.
Give blood: Fewer people are donating blood at this time, which means the Red Cross is facing dire shortages.
Express gratitude: Healthcare workers are being tested physically and emotionally every day. Services such as Health Hero Hotline allow you to leave messages of appreciation and support. Call 877-226-HERO (4376).
Provide mental health support: Mental health helplines like Crisis Text Line are looking for volunteers to answer texts from people in crisis.
Practice social distancing and self-care: Don’t underestimate how much you’re helping by simply following public health guidelines. Even by just staying at home as much as you can and practicing social distancing when you do go out, you’re making a vital difference in your community.
Looking for other ways to help?: VolunteerMatch pairs you with remote volunteer opportunities.
