HOW CAN I HELP?
This fund financially aids nonprofits in Columbus, so that they can respond to the increased need in our city. As of May 14th, the fund has donated over 4 million dollars to 100+ organizations in Franklin County such as The Children's Hunger Alliance and LifeCare Alliance.
Donate to the ORA's relief fund to help financially support restaurant employees who are out of work or have limited hours due to COVID-19.
Since the outbreak of the pandemic there has been a shortage of blood donations in the US. If you are healthy and qualify - especially if you have recovered yourself from COVID-19 - please consider donating at your local Red Cross.
Over $250,000 have been raised to support artists and organizations in the Columbus area. The GCA reports that the need is still greater than their resources as more events continue to be postponed and cancelled.
