Benefiting Organizations:

American Red Cross: The Red Cross is coordinating with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and blood industry partners to collect plasma from individuals who are fully recovered from COVID-19 to help with treatment for the most seriously ill patients. During this uncertain time, the Red Cross encourages individuals to keep scheduled blood donation appointments and to make new blood donation appointments for the weeks ahead to ensure a stable supply throughout this pandemic. There is no known end date in this fight against coronavirus, and the Red Cross needs the help of blood and platelet donors to maintain a sufficient blood supply. Blood donation is essential to ensuring the health of our communities, and volunteer donors are the only source of blood for those in need. If you are healthy and feeling well, please make an appointment to donate in the weeks ahead by using the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior to arriving at the drive and are required to wear a face covering or mask while at the drive, in alignment with new CDC public guidance.

CDC Foundation’s All of Us: Combat Coronavirus Campaign: The CDC Foundation is working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local health departments to gain on-the-ground insights into the evolving COVID-19 emergency situation and a clear understanding of immediate needs. Funds from the campaign will be directed toward deploying emergency staffing to U.S. public health agencies, providing support to vulnerable communities, supporting frontline workers with medical supplies, increasing lab capacity, boosting clinical research, and much more.

Feeding America: The Feeding America network is the largest hunger-relief organization in the United States including in disasters and national emergencies. Through a network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs, Feeding America provides meals to more than 40 million people each year. The organization launched the COVID-19 Response Fund, a national food and fundraising effort to support people facing hunger and the food banks who help them through emergency food boxes, grants and distribution of food and non-food household items including cleaning supplies, diapers and personal care products. Feeding America also is working with government leaders to ensure the emergency response includes strong support and flexibility for federal nutrition programs including the School Lunch Program and is partnering with school districts to ensure that 22 million children who rely on school meals have access to food outside of the classroom.

Meals on Wheels America: Meals on Wheels America is the leadership organization supporting the more than 5,000 community-based programs across the country that are dedicated to addressing senior isolation and hunger. This network serves virtually every community in America and, along with more than two million staff and volunteers, delivers the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks that enable America’s seniors to live nourished lives with independence and dignity. Vulnerable seniors are at the greatest risk amid COVID-19. Local Meals on Wheels programs are on the front lines every day, focused on doing all they can to keep older Americans safe and nourished in communities across the country. The costs and efforts needed to protect seniors from COVID-19 require additional emergency funds. The Meals on Wheels COVID-19 Response Fund has been created to ensure local communities have what they need to continue to deliver a vital lifeline to our most at-risk Americans.

Salvation Army: As Coronavirus COVID-19 has evolved into a pandemic, the Salvation Army is caring for people experiencing homelessness or living in poverty as they may be more vulnerable to the disease. They have ramped up efforts to slow the spread of this virus among their employees, volunteers, and the homeless and other vulnerable people they serve. Currently, three priority focus areas for The Salvation Army include 1) food for shelter residents, first responders, low-income families and students, and senior citizens; 2) safe shelter for the homeless; and 3) support for those who have been economically impacted due to business shutdowns.

United Way: United Way Worldwide’s COVID-19 Community Response and Recovery Fund helps families and people in need access critical information and services like food, shelter, and more through the United Way network. It also bolsters 211, United Way’s go-to information resource in times of crisis. Calls to 211 for help with basics have risen more than 300% in some areas and are expected to top 27 million calls over the next six months. That’s more than twice the usual call volume that 211 fields in a typical year.
