Coronavirus Needs Report:  Tuesday, March 31st

Dear friends,

The team at Visit.org is committed to sharing the immediate short-term and long-term needs from nonprofits in our community. We encourage you to share this email with your friends and colleagues so we can come together to support those most affected by this crisis:
 

The American Red Cross is asking for the help of healthy blood donors and blood drive hosts to ensure a stable blood supply throughout this pandemic. The need is constant—make an appointment to give blood at a location near your home here.

Chicago nonprofit The Simple Good empowers at-risk youth to bring positivity into communities through art and discussion. While their programs have been suspended due to the crisis, consider showing your support for their students and future programing by donating or buying a t-shirt inspired by their youth.

As the lead humanitarian agency looking out for children when emergencies strike, UNICEF is sending support and vital supplies to fight the novel coronavirus on the front lines and protect children around the world. Make a donation here.
 

Engage your employees in volunteering from home:
 

Wherever you are, you can help individuals experiencing blindness or vision loss by volunteering through an assistive app with the organization Be My Eyes. With the touch of a button, these individuals can request assistance from anywhere, at any time. Current Visit.org partners can get started here. If you’re not yet a corporate partner, please reach out to [email protected] for help facilitating this activity. 

 

From your friends at Visit.org, stay safe, and let’s take care of each other. 

Warmly,

Visit.org
