COVID-19 is a far-reaching problem that greatly affects Florida. Unfortunately, it looks like we still have a long road to go.

How to make COVID-19 relief donations that stay in the Palm Beach community
With any crisis as broad and invasive as COVID-19, there is no shortage of ways to donate, but what if you want your money or your donations to go to those in need right here in your area? We understand that, which is why we recommend donating to the Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties.
The Community Foundation has been helping our community for over 50 years, and they’ve taken initiative during the current crisis. They have already deployed $2.9 million to local communities in need. They are serving the community with emergency medical equipment, hot-meal distributions, distance learning computers, and assistance with local mortgage, rental, and utility relief.

Other ways to donate to local COVID-19 relief
If you don’t have money or food to give, and if you’ve already suffered COVID-19 yourself, you actually have another powerful way to donate. You can donate your plasma.
It’s a new treatment that uses plasma from those who have already naturally developed COVID-19 antibodies to treat patients that desperately need help. Your plasma will go to those who need it most and could save lives. This treatment has shown positive results and has already been rushed through FDA approval.
For your plasma to qualify for a donation you need to have a prior COVID-19 diagnosis documented by an FDA-approved lab. You also need to have been completely symptom-free for at least fourteen days before donation and have a negative FDA approved COVID-19 test.
