Ideas on what to do to help from home?

Would love to hear ideas.

Bored, we cleaned out closets. Have tons to give to Goodwill..but thought, when it stops raining put in front yard. "Dollar Sale"

With a box to put $ in, and a sign "all $ goes to____ ( local food bank? Whatever charity helps people during pandemic).

1. buy gift cards from your favorite restaurant or bar. many of these folks have been employed there

 

for years. they need a job to come back to.

3. not much I can do... but

I live in a relatively rural area but the road by the house is a "main thoroughfare" from village to village

last year I put up a small self-serve stand to sell my honey and a few misc. things I make...closed for the winter, then, didn't plan to open until May but...

this week I shoveled a path to the stand, ordered a couple of commercial coffee urns and a "hot box"... the restaurants are closed in Vermont and so I am, along with my honey and misc. will be offering coffee, muffins, etc. for free (or donation) (I have a home bakery license)

I also make soap and will offer it if I can somehow keep the non food items separate

4. Staying home seems a weird way to help, but it should help. Stay healthy

because providers and hospitals may not be able to care for you.
