Ways to Support Others Locally

The following are some ways that you can help others in our community during the COVID-19 pandemic:

* Click here to make a donation to La Casita. Currently, they are not taking food donations but are accepting monetary gifts for purchasing food through PayPal.

* Contribute to the Emergency Relief Fund for Families in Crisis due to COVID-19, distributed by the Association of Community Ministries at https://www.facebook.com/donate/213762309995777/3066370830063073.

* Donate to or volunteer at Dare to Care. Dare to Care is providing extra services due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Visit https://daretocare.org or call 502-966-3821.

* There is a severe shortage of blood donations. To find a donation center near you, visit the Red Cross website here and type in your zip code.

* Call Mayor Fischer at 502-574-2003 and ask him to use his leverage to release those people who are in jail awaiting trial because they could not afford bail. Because the jail is overcrowded and inmates cannot practice social distancing, the pandemic can spread rapidly in the jail.

Be in touch with neighbors and friends at church who are most vulnerable to the virus to see if you can make a grocery or drug store run for them.
