BE A NO-CONTACT HELPER
Email or call your neighbors, especially those who live alone, to make sure they have what they need--food, medicine, water, etc. There are lots of easy, no-contact ways to show you care--offer to pick up supplies for them during your next shopping trip, make and drop off a meal, just check in to see how they’re doing.
Now more than ever it’s important to keep in touch with family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers through email, social media and even old-fashioned phone calls. Supporting each other will help to keep us resilient and healthy!
Write a letter/email of thanks to your town/city/County First Responders and let them know they are appreciated while hustling 24/7!
