Coronavirus: ways to help
If you are financially stable during this COVID-19 pandemic, we encourage you to donate to one (or more) local charities that can really use it. The organizations in our community do powerful work and provide services that people need now more than ever.
- The Open Door Mission is looking for funds and supplies. Check out their Facebook page for specifics and here's their Amazon wish list.
- Child Saving Institute is in desperate need of disinfectant and hand sanitizer. Their life-saving programs cannot close and they're looking for supplies to keep everyone safe and healthy. If you have any extra, please consider donating a spare. Of course monetary donations are accepted anytime as well.
- Foodbank for the Heartland is hosting mobile pantries and drive-up solutions for those in need. Please see their donation options during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Blood is a crucial part of emergency preparedness for hospitals and the supply must be constantly replenished. The United States is facing a severe shortage of blood due to the Coronavirus.
The American Red Cross
or Nebraska Community Blood Bank
are two organizations to donate. It's easy to set up an appointment online and they offer safe donation sites.
