In time like these, we need to support each other. See below for ways to donate

to FCHIP’s COVID-19 Relief Fund or to volunteer locally. 


Bitwise’s Take Care Program

“We need volunteers to shop/deliver groceries and supplies to elderly and sick loved ones. Details: We recognize this is a difficult time for many folks. As we continue to prioritize social distancing to protect ourselves, family, friends, and the greater public, we know many folks may not have access to everyday items they need.
If you have an elderly or sick loved one that you can’t get to, or if you are elderly or sick, Bitwise is delivering groceries.”

Serve Fresno

Serve Fresno is a website with a massive resource list of different ways to get involved with helping the community during this trying time. There are a wide variety opportunities ranging from sewing masks to sorting books for kids.
