About the Project


During this pandemic, we have asked essential workers to risk their lives so that our communities can stay safe at home. But who protects them? Give Essential lets donors send extra household items directly to an essential worker who needs them, providing a way to support the frontline from home.

Project details

Who is already working on this

We're Amy and Rine, two college roommates. As we've watched COVID-19 unfurl and significantly change the world around us, we wondered what we could do to help. We were touched by the expressions of humanity we've seen in our communities, and launched Give Essential to help support the hidden frontline.
