hospital hero

If you want to help the incredible medical professionals on the front lines of this pandemic, volunteer your time by matching up with a nearby healthcare worker.


Healthcare workers can request support for meals, pet care, errands, and more.


New York Blood Center (NYBC) will be the first blood center to collect blood plasma donations from people who have recovered from COVID-19 to treat other patients with advanced illness. In the treatment, known as convalescent plasma, the patient is transfused with the donor’s plasma with the goal of using the donor’s antibodies to help clear the virus more rapidly. 

NYS: Get involved

New York State is doing all it can to keep New Yorkers safe and stop the spread of COVID-19. But we’re stronger if we all work together. Governor Cuomo is calling on health care professionals, schools of public health or medicine and PPE products providers and manufacturers to come forward to support the state’s response.


Mask Match is a peer-to-peer platform helping people with spare N95 and surgical masks send them directly to healthcare workers on the front lines who need them — without needing to leave their house. 

If you are a healthcare worker, fill out the “I need masks” form to receive masks; if you have masks you'll match with a healthcare worker match so you can ship your masks directly to them.

project n95

Project N95 is focused on delivering medical equipment into the hands of healthcare providers as quickly as possibly by serving as the nation's clearinghouse for hospitals/healthcare requests and suppliers who are able to provide medical equipment. They are working with governments and hospitals/healthcare networks to determine where demand is and where it is most urgent.

support nyc small businesses

Find small businesses still open in your neighborhood, and order delivery directly or grab a gift card to use for a future birthday dinner, self-care day, or movie theater date night. Then, spread the word and share this with others. The more New Yorkers that come together, the more we can make a difference.
