In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, MyPocketChange has put a temporary hold on the the receipt and distribution of gifts this holiday season. We apologize in advanced to our donors, partners, and families who we work with. We felt, with cases escalating that the best thing we could do would be to direct resources to organizations that are directly servicing this pandemic.
Here are a few you might want to consider.
Feeding America has a Covid-19 Response Fund that is helping to ensure food banks across the country can feed those in need right now, including the children who rely on school meals to eat.
Doctors Without Borders is sending aid to the countries hit hardest by Covid-19 and strengthening the infection controls in its already established programs, as well as maintaining existing help in the 70-plus countries it regularly assists.
The World Health Organization is coordinating efforts across the world to respond to existing cases and prevent the novel coronavirus from spreading.
Oxfam America is organizing efforts to increase the delivery of clean water and sanitary supplies to refugees and those living in higher-risk environments.
The Red Cross is in desperate need of blood donations if you’re in a position to do so.
World Central Kitchen is delivering chef-prepared meals to those in need.
Team Rubicon, a veteran-based company that provides services during natural disasters and emergencies, has assembled teams across the country to help with logistics, packaging and distributing food, and even supplementing hotline staffing.
