There are a lot of ways to help those in our community who are in need. We’ll continue to update this page as we find more ways for you to provide support through volunteering your time or making a financial contribution.
The American Red Cross of Wisconsin is seeking people who are fully recovered from the coronavirus to sign up to donate plasma to help current COVID-19 patients. Patients who have fully recovered following a COVID-19 diagnosis may have antibodies in their plasma that can help those with serious or immediately life-threatening COVID-19 infections. You can find out more about donating plasma, donating blood if you’re healthy, and other volunteer opportunities by clicking here.
Second Harvest Food Bank of Southern Wisconsin is an essential resource for those facing hunger. They are anticipating the need to distribute up to 100,000 boxes of food over the next 6-8 weeks.
