We have an app almost completed that will allow neighbors to share needs with each other, such as sharing grocery store runs and dropping off items for each other.
In particular, our hope is that younger members of a neighborhood might be able to do the shopping for older or vulnerable members, who should not go out but maybe don't feel able or comfortable to pay for grocery delivery when they run out of something. Other resource and safe activity sharing such as outdoor walking can be arranged as well. At least, being invited to express their needs in a safe group may help people feel less alone.
The original purpose of the app was to bring neighbors together thru meal sharing, but with #COVID19 we are repurposing it for checking on each other and filling needs with social distancing.
We could use React and Python coders to help, we have an existing framework and deployment but need to make a number of tweaks to make it work for this purpose and make the flow easy to use.
(this is technically under our sister Benefit corp, not the nonprofit, and coders will receive warrants for equity in the benefit corporation)

We can.
civ.works is a privacy protected social platform built for meaningful civic action.
The concept of civ.works is to finally provide a societal machine to stand up against something created nearly 50 years ago -and begin the process of empowering citizens again. We are building a platform together -against an incredibly mature and well-funded machine. Your volunteer efforts will be helping us collectively build something powerful and important.
