Non-Profits Needing Help During Coronavirus Pandemic
To try to fight the COVID-19 global pandemic, group gatherings are cancelled including fundraising and donation events. This is effecting our non-profits who rely on our community for donations and volunteers. Here are ways to help those who help others while we fight the coronavirus disease together. If you help in-person, please sure you and the organization are following the latest precautions from the CDC.
- Your local food bank or food pantry like Feeding Wisconsin or The Salvation Army Food Pantry
- Blood centers such as Versiti Blood Center of Wisconsin
- Ask for a secure link to donate money online to support their cause
- Obtain a list of needed items and see when personnel will be at the office to accept your Amazon shipment. Take it a step further and order on AmazonSmile to donate to registered non-profit.
For additional ideas on how your organization can help non-profits, please view the 5 ideas on the America’s Charities website.
Heroes for Healthcare
Led by former nurse and owner of Premier Medical Staffing Services, Laura Hanoski began Heroes for Healthcare in 2017. After realizing how many veterans who worked in healthcare while in the service were unemployed due to their skills not being directly transferable to civilian side, Laura created a set of services to help veterans find employment after service.
