Red Hands Helping, our charitable arm, is extending support to multiple organizations making a community impact during the coronavirus outbreak.
In April, we proudly supported Food & Friends, a local organization serving meals to those with illnesses throughout the DMV and the Center for Disaster Philanthropy COVID-19 Response Fund, supporting preparedness, containment, response, and recovery for individuals and first responders impacted by the virus.
In May, Red Hands Helping contributed to Feed the Fight, a DMV organization which is purchasing meals from local restaurants and delivering them to local healthcare workers and first responders.
Red Hands Go Green, our charitable environmental initiative, also contributed to Rock Creek Conservancy and the Smithsonian National Zoo’s COVID-19 Emergency Fund. Rock Creek Conservancy is the only organization dedicated solely to conserving and protecting our local Rock Creek and its parks. The National Zoo’s Emergency Fund supports the Zoo’s staff and animals while the Zoo is closed to visitors due to the pandemic.
