Bronx Mutual Aid Network for Covid19
This support network began to help Bronx residents organize their own communities and help each other out during the COVID-19 pandemic. We help people access food and supplies, pickup prescriptions and complete errands for all those who are elderly, disabled and/or immunocompromised. Our entire operation is decentralized with the central goal of getting people to organize their own mutual aid networks in their building, block, and neighborhood.
What we need funds for
The response to our group has been overwhelming, especially among those who need our help. We are led by people of color and are hoping to help people in the areas of The Bronx that are most impacted by the crisis, including South Bronx, Parkchester, Fordham, Norwood, and other areas with large Black, Latino, and Asian populations.
A family's weekly grocery is on average $100.
Since we are volunteer-organized, there is a limit to the help we can provide and won't be able to fill every request unless we can raise money to buy groceries and supplies for those who can't afford them during this unprecedented global health crisis.
How you can help
With the requests continuing to pour in, we need all the help we can get. If you are part of a local mutual aid network in The Bronx, please send us a quick email to BXMutualAid@gmail.com to join our network and introduce yourself!
