With the outbreak and spread of COVID-19, New York City has undergone a seismic shift in daily life. New Yorkers are resilient, but many across the five boroughs and from all walks of life are feeling the impacts of the novel coronavirus physically, emotionally, financially, and otherwise.
In the midst of difficult and uncertain times New Yorkers are stepping up. Many are seeking to connect and lend support to their neighbors by asking, “How can I help?”
In response, Mayor de Blasio has charged the Mayor’s Fund with activating the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund to provide resources and support to:
Personal Protective Equipment Need
The City of New York is seeking donations of medical supplies and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to support the City's healthcare workers. To donate PPE, visit nyc.gov/ppedonations.
