Sisters, Brothers, Kin—
With COVID-19 ravaging communities and industries across the world, we need to provide support to our most at-risk, elderly, and disabled members. To that end, the International has launched C.A.R.E.S. (Coronavirus Active Response and Engagement Service), a new initiative to organize mutual aid amongst for the most vulnerable of our sisters and brothers.
Our efforts will be centered around a new website: iatsecares.org. The initiative establishes a “Buddy System”, where members in need may request for a volunteer to call them at the frequency of their choice.
The initiative also establishes a delivery system, where members in need can have a trusted volunteer deliver groceries, prescriptions, and other necessary supplies within 72 hours.
But for this to work, first we need volunteers to help. Can you register to volunteer on our new site?
Sign up to volunteer here.
