Support local businesses

Many businesses continue to offer services for online groceries, take-out and meal plans to help residents get access to fresh or prepared food and other household items.

Monetary donations

Making a financial contribution to an organization involved in disaster relief is the best way of helping people in need. The Vancouver Foundation has launched a Community Response Fund – A collaborative multi-sector partnership to rapidly deploy essential relief to charities that provide frontline services to people and organizations that are disproportionately impacted by the pandemic and its economic consequences.
