Ways To Help
During these difficult times, it's important for us to continue to support those in need whether it's a neighbor, family, friend, or even a complete stranger. To that end, we came up with a list of organizations who could use some extra support, so if you're able to, please consider donating your time and/or money to their relief efforts.
No Kid Hungry
In California as of right now, 99.6% of school districts are closed representing more than 6 million students that are not in school. No Kid Hungry’s program team is in close communication with local school districts across the state and from our initial survey, we anticipate funding needs will be for non-congregate and home delivered meals, emergency meals programs and extended meals service, school and community pantries, and backpack programs.
- Your support helps: feed children in need, provide emergency grants for food banks, provide resources to the hardest-hit communities

American Red Cross
Right now, the American Red Cross encourages healthy, eligible individuals to schedule a blood or platelet donation appointment at redcrossblood.org to help maintain a sufficient blood supply and avoid any potential shortages. Donating blood is a safe process and people should not hesitate to give or receive blood. The need for blood is constant, and volunteer donors are the only source of blood for those in need of transfusions.
- Overseas, Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers are supporting communities in preparing for the virus and protecting families from getting sick.
- At each blood drive and donation center, Red Cross employees follow thorough safety protocols to ensure donor and recipient safety.
