The Bronx Mutual Aid Network for Covid19 is an entirely volunteer-run, community-funded initiative which relies on donations (https://chuffed.org/project/bxmutualaid
) to help those that are most needy/vulnerable at this time and cannot receive help from the city or state government. These are folks such as: undocumented families, elderly folks, those who are ill and/or disabled and cannot leave their homes. Please be mindful when sending requests.
Mutual aid is about community members providing direct support to our neighbors in times of need, and generally fostering greater human connection. Mutual aid volunteers may be able to provide medical supplies, groceries, small-scale financial support, child or pet care, companionship, and other forms of assistance. Neighbors throughout Bronx and NYC, are providing mutual aid to those facing hardship due to the impacts of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
We are an all-volunteer grassroots group operating in the various neighborhoods of The Bronx. We want to help folks who are sick, disabled, quarantined without pay, elderly, undocumented, immigrant, queer, Black, Latinx, Indigenous, etc.
