CV19 Mutual Aid Community Network Call 4/4/20
CV19 Mutual Aid Community Network. Ready to help! Check-In Zoom call this Saturday 4/4/20 at noon.
Hello neighbor, Please join the efforts to support and aid our community in the times of the CV-19. A lot of elderly neighbors may need our help. Low-income families may not have enough for them to survive these difficult times. Folks that live in the streets don’t have what they need to keep the virus from spreading. And, some of us may experience stress and anxiety as we maintain space between us. We are here to support and help. Please join if you can offer a hand, smile, or whatever you can. This group is no mine but ours. Please share resources as to how to help others and let’s get organized. If you want to volunteer & offer your help.
