How You Can Help

Donate to the Rockland County Coronavirus Crisis Fund

Our neighbors are facing loss of jobs and suspended benefits making it difficult to afford basic needs. Local nonprofits are finding it hard to meet the increased demand for resources and services. In this time of uncertainty and rising need please donate to the Rockland County Coronavirus Crisis Fund to help support Rockland County families in crisis. Your donation will provide lifesaving resources to families impacted by COVID-19. 100% of your donation will remain in Rockland County to provide essential resources, including food and other necessary items, as well as support to continue to provide important Coronavirus information to the Rockland County community.
