We can help economic victims of the coronavirus while they await federal aid
At our virtual meeting on Saturday March 28th, we discussed what we can do to help those in our community who have been slammed by the shut-down of the economy to facilitate social distancing.
Here are several opportunities close to home to help those hit by the economic crisis.
- First, if you've canceled with your hairdresser or house cleaner, please consider paying them anyhow.
- In Charlotte County, you can help support residents who are suddenly without a paycheck by making a matched donation to the Charlotte County Community Foundation. For information, call 941-637-0077.
- In Sarasota County, the annual Season of Sharing (the Herald Tribune and the Community Foundation of Sarasota County) is once again collecting to assist with rental needs, child care, utility bills and other expenses. Online donations can be made here. Call 941-556-3000 for more information.
- Write a check to Englewood Meals On Wheels and send it to Englewood Meals on Wheels, PO Box 782, Englewood FL 34295.
