Ways to help NYC Covid-19 relief efforts!
As so many of you probably are as well, I continue to worry about the ongoing crisis in NYC throughout the COVID-19 outbreak. New York City is a place that means so much to me in my heart, as I know it does for so many other Americans around our whole country.
While we sit in our homes, isolated and doing everything we can to limit risk of exposure and spreading the coronavirus, I know it is tough. Sitting idle when you’d really like to be out there doing something to help isn’t easy. No, in fact it’s pretty gosh darn hard — especially when we see the need for support and resources in NYC to continue to grow every day.

In my own personal research, I have been looking for ways to get involved and help NYC COVID-19 relief efforts as best as I can. In the event that you too are looking to get involved, I wanted to compile a list for you of some ways you can take action – big or small – to help make a difference.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned about times like this over the years, it’s that every little bit of help counts. It truly does! So if you have the ability, please review the list of ways to help NYC COVID-19 relief efforts below and take action where you can.
