About the Project

Description

NYC COVID Relief is dedicated to flattening the curve during the COVID-19 pandemic while alleviating the needs in NYC’s underserved neighborhoods. We started as a grassroots project and centralized hub of public resources to the general community in one location:
(1) PPE donation lines for healthcare providers
(2) PPE supplier lines for healthcare institutions (private)
(3) Resources for displaced NYC workers, individuals and small businesses
(4) Educational material to those not in the know (immigrants, students, parents, etc)
(5) Local on-the-ground donation runs
(6) Serving as a direct contact to distribute and/or re-distribute donated PPE to hospitals

In collaboration with sister organizations, we're now also working towards:
(1) basic PPE and testing kits to Nursing Homes and secluded areas of the city, hidden hotspots for COVID deaths.
