For those of us who are fortunate enough to be able to work from home with no impact on income, it seems like a good thing to do would be to donate what we usually spend on transportation/coffee/lunch to those who are losing income due to closures. Any suggestions for organizations that support people losing income?”
“I’m wondering what people in DC are doing to support local businesses that may be impacted by coronavirus. Other than ordering takeout or delivery, is there anything more we can do over the next few weeks?
Hoping you can post that. I’d love any ideas people have.”
“I’m planning to be cautious over the next few weeks but not a complete shut-in. It would be awesome if we could get a running list of which local businesses and chains are offering paid sick leave. I want to know that when I do go out, I’m patronizing the restaurants, bars, and shops that respect their employees (and their customers) enough to give paid sick leave.”

While I feel pretty good about my personal situation (plenty of food and cleaning supplies, can work remotely), I’m feeling pretty concerned for parts of our DC community that may not be so lucky – any idea if there’s anything we can be doing or organizations working to help those folks?”
