American Red Cross – Donate blood & plasma
https://www.redcrossblood.org/
In coordination with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Red Cross is seeking people who are fully recovered from the new coronavirus to sign up to donate plasma to help current COVID-19 patients. Patients who have fully recovered following a COVID-19 diagnosis may have antibodies in their plasma that can help those with serious or immediately life-threatening COVID-19 infections. (I copied this from the website. We can edit.) Even if you have not had COVID-19, there is always a need for blood.

Lowell Interfaith COVID-19 Food/Diaper Drive for Lowell Food Pantry
From May 3-16, faith groups in the city will be collecting food and diapers for the Lowell Food Pantry. Contact your faith community to coordinate a porch pick-up or identify the drop-off location.  Monetary doations can also be made via PayPal (pastor@eliotlowell.org) or by mail (6 Coolidge Ave., Westford, MA 01886) and make the check payable to GLILA – Memo: Food Drive.
