COVID-19: Uniting to tackle one of the greatest challenges of our time

COVID-19: Uniting to tackle one of the greatest challenges of our time

The COVID-19 pandemic is touching every aspect of our lives, changing how we live, work, learn, and engage with our community. Stand Together is doing all we can to make a difference right now by partnering with incredible individuals and organizations: 

  • In communities, ramping up efforts to help those who are jobless and in poverty 
  • In education, launching a new resource for parents to educate their kids while at home (learneverywhere.org)   
  • In business, helping leaders who are working around the clock to make sure people get the staples they need and their employees are well taken care of 
  • In government, supporting activists who are working with state and federal lawmakers to pass policies that expand healthcare options and that address the sudden economic downturn 

A crisis of this magnitude requires a comprehensive approach with people from all walks of life contributing in whatever way they can. There is much more we can and will do as this crisis continues to develop. 

In the past several days, we have heard from hundreds of groups that we support as well as partners from around the country. If you have questions about how you can help others in this time of crisis, needs that Stand Together can help address, or ideas for what more can be done, please email us at MakeADifference@standtogether.org

If ever there was a time to Stand Together as a country, this is it. Together, we can help bring out the best in our country – and one another – at a time when that can make the biggest difference. 

We will be updating this page with the efforts and initiatives that the Stand Together community and our partners are doing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Getting money to families who need it most Stand Together is partnering with the Family Independence Initiative (FII) to launch #GiveTogetherNow, a rapid-response effort to get money directly to the families who need it most. And we want you to be a part of it. Published 3/26/20
  • Fresh ideas to combat COVID-19 could earn funding As we face a worldwide pandemic of the novel coronavirus, never has creative thinking and innovation meant more. Now the very kind of inspired action that is needed to stem the spread of this disease will be not just encouraged but rewarded. Published 3/17/20
