My friend Hannah has been tirelessly organizing food and other donations in her north Minneapolis neighborhood. She has literally been leaving her front door open for people to drop off or pick up stuff they need (like that burn cream!)
Now she’s asking for money to support building out these efforts (tents, tables). If you have the means, her Venmo is HaPritch82.
More details about current needs on her Twitter: https://twitter.com/BicycleHannah/status/1268738634552872960?s=20

Today my 90 year old grandma told me she hadn’t been in a car in WEEKS and I was like... same? But all the time?
