SOSNA is forming a virtual neighborhood committee to work on two things:

1) Create a database of neighbors who may need assistance in the upcoming weeks and those who may be able to offer it (think grocery pick up, or even helping someone who isn't familiar with online grocery shopping, and other essential tasks that may become difficult).

2) Develop an updated and evolving plan for identifying neighborhood needs that can be met by their budgeted grant program.

MEDICAL & NON-MEDICAL VOLUNTEERS: The best way to get involved in the COVID-19 response is to join the Philadelphia Medical Reserve Corps (MRC). The Philadelphia MRC is a group of more than 2,500 volunteers who serve the City during public health emergencies and large-scale events. The Philadelphia Department of Public Health trains the Philadelphia MRC and coordinates its response in times of need. By volunteering for the Philadelphia MRC, you can contribute to a healthier, more resilient Philadelphia.
