What Local Companies are Doing During COVID-19 Crisis to Give Back
Updated: Apr 10
While the nation practices self-isolating to help flatten the curve and stop the spread of COVID-19, many find themselves looking for ways to give back to their communities.
Whether creating masks at home to donate to healthcare workers or leaving some extra supplies on their front step for delivery servicemen, many have found new ways to help others during the coronavirus pandemic.
Born and raised in Newton Massachusetts, actor John Krasinski has created the overnight sensation Some Good News that highlights the ways in which individuals are still doing good in the world during this pandemic. Here at Generus, we would like to highlight some local Massachusetts-based companies and individuals who have innovated to give back in creative ways:
