For San Diegans, the last few weeks have been filled with anxiety and upheaval. One way some people have found to cope is by helping out.
Whether that's writing a note to people socially isolated in a nursing home or calling a neighbor.
Even during this time of social distancing and stay-at-home orders, there are opportunities to help your community. For instance — at Wednesday's county news conference Rady's and the Rock Church announced a partnership to collect personal protective equipment.
"We've never been here before and the only way we're going to get through is if we stick together," said Pastor Miles McPherson from the Rock Church.
If you have masks, gloves or other PPE you want to donate, contact Rady Children’s Foundation.
San Diego Foundation CEO Mark Stuart, San Diego Food Bank CEO James Floros and San Diego Blood Bank's Claudine Van Gonka join Midday Edition on Thursday to talk about more ways of giving back.
- Donate to The San Diego Foundation's COVID-19 Community Response Fund. The fund provides grants and interest-free loans to nonprofits responding to the crisis.
