Where to donate money for coronavirus-related need
« on: March 27, 2020, 10:16:49 AM »
If you have a few extra bucks and feel so inclined, where do you plan to donate?

I made a donation today to NYC Health and Hospitals (Elmhurst is in this system) at https://nychhc.networkforgood.com/

Excerpt:
Your non-restricted donation can help us provide these services and support to our doctors, nurses, and other health care workers on the front line:

-Meals. There’s not time to take lunch and dinner breaks.
-Prepackaged groceries to take home. There’s no time to food shop in between long shifts.
-Hotel rooms. Our staff are taking care of COVID-19 patients and don’t want to go home and risk exposure to their families.
-Laundry service. There’s not time to clean work clothes and scrubs.
-Scrubs. We need more to ensure staff does not have to wear work clothes home from the hospital.

Our goal is to provide as many resources as possible, as quickly as possible, and prioritize the health and wellness of our essential workforce so they can continue to provide their best care for patients without exposing themselves or their families to undue infection risk.
