COVID Relief Opportunities for India

COVID is spreading like wildfire in India. Cases have soared 46% over two weeks, according to the New York Times, while deaths are up 120%. India needs help, now. I urge the Cherry Crest Community to come together in this critical time and help me raise funds to send oxygen to India. I’m working directly with a volunteer team of doctors in India who are helping me identify rural areas that are not visible on the government distribution list. Why? Because I was born and raised in a rural county and I know those rural counties need our help!
