Lang Nelson Researches How to Make a Difference During a Pandemic

With facts and information evolving in the COVID-19 world daily, we wanted to highlight different ways we can support one another and the community. The information below is from Help Guide in an article called "Coronavirus: How to Help and Give Back"

Start with your community

The easiest way to give back is by reaching out to the people you know. Neighbors, friends, co-workers, and relatives can all benefit from a friendly text or video call. It may seem like a small gesture, but don’t underestimate the positive impact of checking up on someone. 

Make a donation

While many people don’t have extra funds right now, if you’re one of the lucky ones who do, consider donating to an organization that’s making a difference during the pandemic. Some possibilities include hospitals and health centers or national and local charities that provide housing, financial assistance, or food.

Donate without spending money

If you’re strapped for cash, there are ways to donate without spending money. Here are some goods that are in need: Food, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Hard-to-find supplies, computers, and clothing.

Give blood

Fewer people are donating blood at this time, which means the Red Cross is facing dire shortages. And as coronavirus cases continue to increase, the number of eligible donors has dropped. While many of us have been warned against “nonessential” errands, the Red Cross and other blood banks have remained open with safety precautions in place.
