Other Ways to Get Involved
- Consider sending letters, cards, emails or drawings to senior citizens at retirement homes or centers. It is not recommended to visit at this time, but it is a nice gesture to send them notes.
- Do you have a neighbor or family member who lives alone? Take some time to call or video chat with them.
- Consider sending cards of thanks to healthcare workers who are working around the clock to keep our communities healthy and safe.
- Send messages of care and hope to your community through sidewalk chalk/art.
- Take some time to get creative to best help your community, but always make health and safety your first priorities.
- Take Action: Face Masks for Local Health Care Professionals.
