Ways to Help during the COVID-19 Pandemic
Be a part of the Middletown Community Thanksgiving Project! Donate a pie for community Thanksgiving baskets.
Russell Library will be collecting fresh, store-bought pies on Saturday, November 21st (10am-5pm) and Sunday, November 22nd (1-5pm).
Register to receive a reminder email to drop your pie off at the Library on those dates. There is more need than usual this year due to the pandemic. Your community thanks you!
If you would like to volunteer to assist at Amazing Grace Food Pantry with this year’s Thanksgiving project, you may sign-up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080548adad2ea2fe3-2020
At this time monetary donations are more important than ever. The pantry can stretch your dollars with wholesale, bulk purchases.
The Red Cross is desperate for donors. These drives are done by appointment and most drives are keeping the maximum number of people small and in spaces there they have social distancing and a parking lot for people to wait their turn.
The Hinka’s Cupboard food pantry is open the last Thursday of each month. They need donations of money and food.
Register to become a member of the Middletown Medical Reserve Corps. (And no, you do not have to have a medical background to join!)
Support Middlesex Health by donating money and supplies or sending a photo message.
Middlesex Health has prepared an FAQ on how to sew masks for health care providers – including information about the type of material needed and the size and sewing instructions.
Middlesex United Way is happy to be coordinating efforts and working within the community with mask makers, connecting them to those in need. Many of our partners are essential businesses, as they provide direct services to in-need populations.
