Some nonprofits are struggling more than others during the coronavirus. Which ones need donations the most?

Nonprofit organizations on the Peninsula are low on funds and during the coronavirus pandemic, some might be inclined to donate money, goods or time to local charities.

But which nonprofits need the money more than others?

WYDaily reached out to the Peninsula Community Foundation of Virginia and Network Peninsula for a list of nonprofits desperately in need of donations.

“Area nonprofits who provide support in the following areas are seeing increased demand for services and need additional funding to help them meet the need: Mental health, substance abuse, safety and physical abuse, food, shelter, family health, child care and support, and of course, physical health,” Mike Moneith the foundation’s CEO, wrote in an email Thursday. “However, all nonprofit programs are facing severe shortages of revenue and may not exist in the future.”

He suggested those wishing to donate to visit the PCF Virginia’s initiative, Give Local 757, where people can donate to more than 200 nonprofits.

“May 12th is “GIVE LOCAL 757 DAY” and we hope that our nonprofits will see a huge level of support for what they are doing,” he added.

Karen Dutro, executive director of Network Peninsula, wrote in an email Tuesday that the nonprofit had set up two pages, Needs and Services.

The following list is taken from the organization’s Needs page and is updated as needed.

Needs

The American Red Cross is collecting blood donations and the United Way of the Virginia Peninsula has established a COVID-19 Emergency Fund.

Multiple nonprofits need cleaning and sanitation supplies as well as toilet paper, according to Network Peninsula’s website. To donate, email karen@networkpeninsula.org.
