A Capitol Hill woman is organizing a group of District residents to help those at high-risk to make it through the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

Allison McGill also spearheaded the Shutdown Meals effort, giving hundreds of free meals to people affected by the 2018-2019 Federal Government shutdown. Now she’s mobilizing volunteers to run errands, provide meals and help out others who would put their lives at risk if they encountered the Coronavirus.

If you live in DC and are healthy and willing to run errands for those who should not be leaving their home (elderly, folks with preexisting conditions), please share your information on McGill’s online form.

Volunteers will not be in contact with those they are helping, employing drop-off and similar methods. They should be able to sanitize their hands and deliver items in a clean, sanitary way.

If you live in DC and are healthy and willing to run errands for those who should not be leaving their home (elderly, folks with preexisting conditions), please share your information on McGill’s online form at COVID-19 Response-Serve Your Neighbor or by emailing McGill at [email protected]
