Small nonprofits in Tacoma are facing huge challenges in the coming weeks as Tacomans grapple with the Covid-19 pandemic. What can each of us as individuals do to support our local nonprofits and the important work they do in our community? David Strong from AHAT Home Care and Melissa Mallott from Citizens for a Healthy Bay joined us for this conversation on March 13th 2020 to talk about the challenges their organizations and others are facing and how Tacomans can help. Melissa Mallott urged everyone to practice social distancing and be mindful of how we are impacting others. David Strong urged everyone to consider the impact that hoarding resources can have on small nonprofits. His organization provides healthcare and housing to folks with compromised immune systems and they are in danger of running out of cleaning supplies. Hoarding can have unintended consequences for our neighbors. If you would like to help AHAT Homecare protect their clients in this time you can drop **Hand Sanitizer** and **Bleach Wipes** only. They are located at Three Cedars facility at 301 North L. Street. Ring the door and staff will come to the front door. Again they are seeking hand santizers and bleach wipes only. Be mindful that many local nonprofits will be forced to cancel essential fundraising events. If you are able, consider donating even if the event does not go forward. Reach out to small nonprofits you support in Tacoma and find out what their needs are. Be patient with any requests you might have as staff resources are very strained right now. If you are a business SPONSORING a fundraiser that has been cancelled PLEASE do not retract your sponsorship. Work with the nonprofit to find other ways to thank you for your support and remember the big picture.
