Center For Disaster Philanthropy
The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) has launched the CDP COVID-19 Response Fund to support preparedness, containment, response and recovery activities for those affected and for the responders. The Fund will focus on supporting local nonprofit organizations working in areas identified as having high numbers of affected individuals and those working with the most vulnerable populations in these areas to help build their capacity for response.
Direct Relief is coordinating with public health authorities, nonprofit organizations and businesses in the U.S., China and globally to provide personal protective equipment and essential medical items to health workers responding to coronavirus (COVID-19). In the U.S., Direct Relief is delivering protective masks - along with exam gloves and isolation gowns - to health care organizations in areas with COVID-19 cases. Direct Relief is also staging personal protective equipment with regional response agencies across the world, including in the Caribbean and South America through the Pan American Health Organization.

San Francisco Marin Food Bank
The SF-Marin Food Bank's mission is to end hunger in San Francisco and Marin, where one in four neighbors is at risk of hunger. We envision a community where everyone is able to obtain enough nutritious food in a dignified manner to support the health and well-being of themselves and their families. We address hunger head on: from our pantry network and home-delivered groceries, to our nutrition-education classes and CalFresh (food-stamp) enrollment, we work in many ways to nourish and empower neighbors in need. Every week, 30,000 households count on us for food assistance. Nearly 60 percent of what we distribute is fresh fruits and vegetables.
