The coronavirus public health emergency is rattling global markets and causing broad uncertainty. As it unfolds, our first priority is to keep our families safe and healthy. The coming weeks are also going to have a big impact on our communities’ most vulnerable including seniors and low income children and families...and on the nonprofit organizations that support them.
Even as social distancing is the safest choice, we have an opportunity to come together at this moment and — when this passes — emerge stronger and more connected than ever. Compass Cares is moving fast to help organizations provide important medical services, food and support to impacted populations supporting:
The CDC Foundation’s Emergency Response Fund will be working day and night to meet fast-emerging public health needs including critical resources for state and local health departments and support for global response, logistics, communications, data management, personal protective equipment and critical response supplies.
Feeding America food banks are responding by feeding people in need including thousands of children whose primary meals have been through public schools that are closing indefinitely.
Meals on Wheels America serves seniors so much more than just a meal and in these uncertain times will be an important lifeline for this vulnerable population. In addition to funds, Meals on Wheels suggests reaching out to at-risk seniors and loved ones to give them support and social interaction.
Please join us in opening our hearts to everyone struggling in our communities and showing how much #CompassCares.
