Help provide aid

Consider volunteering to provide mutual aid during this crisis. This can include delivering groceries or supplies. You might have another skill or resource to contribute, such as providing childcare. Compensation for your transportation, time, or service might be available.

Help fund volunteer work

All money raised will go towards mutual aid, which will include providing food, over the counter medicine and cleaning supplies. We are preparing to include direct support such as childcare, care giving, and running errands. This is not charity, this is solidarity and the truest sense of community. Please donate now to support these efforts!

Direct peer-to-peer cash aid

This Solidarity Relief Fund is for workers who live in the Greater Buffalo area and is similar to a microgrant. If your income has been directly affected as a result of COVID-19, you can request emergency financial mutual aid here. Note that our network has a separate form for requesting non-monetary aid.
