Older people and people with pre-existing health issues are more likely to be in severe condition if they contract the COVID-19 virus. To reduce risks, these vulnerable people are advised to remain at home which it makes difficult for them to get the essentials such as groceries and toiletries. When hospitalization numbers improve, we can all get back to a normal life faster.
We all want to get back to normal faster. Your friend's grandma, old Joe from your neighborhood, and other vulnerable people need your help
Lend a Hand 2020 is a program to match up thousands of university/college students and young people to help vulnerable groups with various things such as picking up groceries, food delivery, delivering masks and sanitizer, and more; so that the vulnerable can comfortably remain at home. Lend a hand today.
Are you a student/young?
Make a difference to your community. You can help deliver goods to the vulnerable in need. We provide you training and recognition.
Need delivery service?
60+ years old, health issues, or other… it’s free to sign up. When available, we’ll match you up with local volunteers that can help deliver goods to you.
Able to contribute?
We can use products such as hand sanitizers, face masks, or toilet paper to distribute to volunteers and the vulnerable. We would appreciate whatever cash proceeds you can contribute for this program.
