How to help others on Thanksgiving during coronavirus

FAN Editor

With the Thanksgiving holiday this week, we wanted to share with you some of the best ways to help your fellow neighbors and be of service to others during this difficult time. 

The nation’s food banks and pantries are still struggling during the coronavirus pandemic. To find your local food bank and learn how to donate, log onto feedingamerica.org. The Red Cross is encouraging people to make and keep future appointments to give blood and platelets. For those who have had the virus, the Red Cross is seeking plasma donations. To make an appointment, you can visit redcrossblod.org or call 1-800-RED-CROSS to find a local donation site. 

Check in on elderly neighbors and offer to help with groceries, or call friends and family who have children at home and offer to help with a virtual activity for a day. Remember, we’re all in this together.

Here’s a look at some organizations we recommend during this holiday season:
