Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu issued the following statement after announcing that the State has mobilized three websites to coordinate volunteer efforts in response to the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.
"In these unprecedented times, we have been encouraged and inspired by Granite Staters rallying together to help. Whether you are helping a neighbor get groceries, are a retired nurse who wants to help out at potential surge flex facilities, or are a business who is answering the call – we cannot thank you enough."
NHResponds.org: This effort will serve as a secure online registration system for medical and non-medical volunteers who can quickly mobilize if needed. NHResponds is part of a nationwide volunteer management system that was established after 9/11 to get medical professionals quickly, and properly deploy them during a public health emergency or disaster.
VolunteerNH.org: New Hampshire is blessed to have many amazing non-profits which do critical work 365 days a year – and especially in times like these. Individuals interested in volunteering for a local non-profit can visit volunteernh.org to be connected with an organization in their area.
NHEconomy.com/PPEHelp: This portal will allow for all businesses to see what products the State needs, and reach out to offer assistance. The State has already heard from nearly 100 companies who are ready to adapt and adjust their operations to provide the protection, equipment, and knowledge base to stop the spread of COVID19 by either donating or producing PPE.
