March 17, 2020 — Siuslaw Vision has put together a webpage called “How to Help and How to Get Help During COVID-19” to help the Siuslaw region. Find it at www.rivercal.org/covid19/.
“As our community faces the uncertainties of COVID-19, it’s important for us to work together and support each other,” wrote Siuslaw Vision Coordinator Stephanie Sarles.
The page includes links to local information and news sources — Siuslaw News, thesiuslawnews.com/coronavirus; Coast Radio KCST/KCFM, kcfmradio.com; and Siuslaw Public Library, www.siuslawlibrary.info/covid19 — as well as tips for taking action or accessing resources.
These include ways to support local organizations and businesses, ways to support the arts, how to help nonprofits and community members and further resources for nonprofits.
“Even as we’re socially distancing from each other, our community building work continues,” Sarles said.
She acknowledged that recommendations on social distancing are changing rapidly, so people should follow advice from public health officials on what kind of interaction is safe and healthy.
People are welcome to contribute ideas for the page by contacting [email protected]
