How to help & get help in the time of coronavirus
Wanted to let everyone know about a Mutual Aid group that Kannan Thiruvengadam has started for East Boston & Chelsea -- basically how it works is you sign up either offering to help in one of the many ways needed (money, grocery delivery, etc.) or you sign up with a request for what you need. The group administrators then acts as "matchmakers" between the helpers and those in need. I signed up last week and have already gotten a few requests -- they send them out to several helpers at once so individuals can pitch in when & how they can.
They are also looking for folks to act as neighborhood point people to start hyper-local phone trees / text groups.
If you are able to help, please sign up! And please spread the word about this wonderful resource.
