In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, EFDN and the other Supporters have launched new initiatives and have carried out several actions to support our local communities.
All of our supporters have gone and are continuing to go above and beyond to help those most in need within the community, throughout these challenging times. Whilst, inspiring others to do the same! Whether it be through making donations, organising fundraisers to aid hospitals or by sharing tips to stay physically active at home, everyone has stepped up to play their part in stopping the further spread of the virus.
To further highlight the great work being carried out and to show the overall impact of our Supporter of Each Other campaign, we would like to showcase the influence your organisation has had within the community, since the start of the COVID-19 health crisis.
We kindly ask that you send over the impact your organisation has had within the community, particularly, through its new initiatives or campaigns. Please send an email to email@example.com or tag our Supporter of Each Other / EFDN accounts in your posts on social media. Take a look at the examples below:
