Organize a community aid group. The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) is offering the opportunity to organize a mutual aid group online in your community.


Help your local animal shelters/rescues. Contact them directly to find out their urgent requirements. Many post wish lists on social media and their websites. Share their social media posts to spread the word about critical items they need to take care of an influx of animals due to increased pet surrenders. Most items can be ordered online and shipped directly to them. (suggested by Annie Hornish at humanesociety.org)

  Globe at Night. (suggested by Viveca Morris)
