Needless to say, it hasn’t been easy, but it’s important to acknowledge that the struggle some people are facing are much worse than others, with essential workers, elderly, and those who are considered “at-risk” having to be extra cautious in how they live their lives. For others, it’s good to give back to the community. However, this can be difficult during COVID-19 since everybody has been instructed to follow proper health guidelines. Here are 3 Ways To Help Others During COVID-19
- Run Errands for the Elderly
Those who are elderly are much more at risk of COVID than the rest of society, so many need to be extra cautious with what they do and where there go outside of their normal living situation. This means that they may have trouble completely activities that they need to live like running errands. If you’re capable of helping out and completing these errands for them — do it! Reach out to elderly members of your community and see if you can pick up their groceries, take out their trash, or picking up anything they need at the pharmacy!
- Make a Donation
Many people are struggling not only mentally, but financially as well. If you cant help out directly in other ways that have been discussed, try and donate to some causes that help out those in need during COVID. Some great foundations you could donate to are the CDC Coronavirus Defense Fund, Save The Children, or any local restaurants that may be struggling! It doesn’t have to be a lot, any amount that you can contribute goes a long way!

The most important thing you can do for those around you it to keep them safe and healthy by keeping yourself safe and healthy. If you wear a mask, social distance, and stay away from recommended areas, you should keep yourself healthy and lower the risk of catching and transmitting COVID to other people.
