Ways to Support Your Community During a Pandemic

Supporting your community and staying connected to those around you is more important now than ever. With so many people affected by illness, job loss, and lack of resources due to COVID-19, there’s a great need for good Samaritans.

Giving to others doesn’t have to mean giving money, although monetary gifts are valuable. Here’s how you can support and give back to a few worthy causes during COVID-19 and beyond.

National Breast Cancer Foundation

For 28 years, National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) has been helping women now.

“In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, breast cancer patients are still facing their breast cancer journey and are more vulnerable than ever. That’s why National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) will be focused on being a voice for them in the coming weeks and months. Whether navigating changes in our healthcare systems or addressing the challenges in an uncertain economy, breast cancer patients and their families need our help now. If you would like to donate to our COVID-19 Relief Fund, click here.

Back On My Feet

Back on My Feet (BoMF) supports those experiencing homelessness through the power of running, personal support, financial literacy classes, and job skills training. BoMF has helped over 7,500 individuals gain housing and/or employment and continues to do so even in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Our community is as active as before – we’ve just gone (temporarily) virtual. All program implementation continues through virtual channels.” Support Back on My Feet by making a donation to our Dallas Fort-Worth chapter or participating in our virtual Meaningful Miles 5k/10k
