COVID-19 response initiative connects essential workers in need with extra household items

During these uncertain times, a single donation—kids’ toys, a box of tampons, or an extra bottle of shampoo—can have a big impact for an essential worker on the frontline. Give Essential, a COVID-19 response initiative that was started by college students, is a peer-to-peer matching platform that connects people with extra household items to an essential worker in need.
