With social distancing making it difficult for us to come together to help our community in this current crisis, the Kenmore Community Club offers this resource page to provide online links with ways to donate and volunteer.
In our mission to support our community the Kenmore Community Club offers this resource list for ways to help during this current COVID-19 crisis. Food donations are welcome but complicated by the potential for spreading the virus left on packaging and box surfaces, consequently the wide variety of food support agencies have adopted a range of rules for donation. As for volunteering, there are no shortage of opportunities, check with each agency for current needs. We hope to grow this list over the coming weeks. If you have a suggestion please send it to Kenmore Club COVID-19 resource page.
