Organization Information

Mission Statement

Our mission is to serve healthcare providers and other essential workers, patients, and communities in the state of Maryland during the coronavirus outbreak. Our goal is to identify needs and create teams of student volunteers to help address those needs. We want to start by helping those on the frontlines of COVID-19 who need help managing their household. Our caregivers provide in-person tutoring, babysitting, online tutoring, pet-walking/sitting, grocery runs, and errands. It takes a village!

Description

We are a group of medical students matching essential healthcare workers with aspiring healthcare student volunteers to help provide childcare and other household necessities in the state of Maryland. Currently, essential healthcare workers are burdened in many ways including lack of personal protective equipment, long work hours, and are unable to meet basic necessities to support their families.

We are also accepting monetary donations and in-kind gifts to support our mission through our website. We have donated over 2000 face shields, N95 masks, gowns, and many other equipment to help protect essential healthcare workers at local hospitals. Visit our website for more information!
