In unprecedented times, the best thing we can do is help others.
Jordan Cramer-Girouard is among those who are trying to do as much as they can to help people affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, delivering and picking up supplies for seniors and others in need.
Everything is kind of crazy right now. Right now the best thing people can do is to help others and to stop flooding the grocery stores. Other local businesses depend on them too, and if there's no food or ingredients, then more places will have to shut down and it causes a chain reaction. It could cause less demand for food at the stores, so they receive less stock, which causes manufacturers to prioritize certain places. It's a chain reaction.
We need more help for small businesses, which don't require you to fill out an application.
On how he's adjusting:
We're a bit stressed here but everyone has been good about it and doing the best we can.
Helping in the community:
I'm offering to deliver and pick up supplies for seniors and others who are unable to get groceries and supplies. I'm just doing whatever I can and think of. A lot of places have shut down and a lot of people have lost their jobs.
