Helping Hands

Description: 

Helping Hands is an initiative launched by the Civic Champs Foundation. Our mission is to help everyone in our community live safely and comfortably by facilitating the connection between neighbors.

The COVID-19 pandemic will have lasting medical and economic impact. Helping Hands is an opportunity to come together as a community and provide relief where it is needed. Initially, our focus will be on older adults as they face the highest risk of severe adverse effects. Our strategy is simple. We believe that small acts of kindness will go a long way. Meaning, starting today is as easy as picking up and delivering groceries.

Civic Champs is a Bloomington-based social enterprise and startup that provides volunteer management software for nonprofit organizations. The members of our team have worked in management consulting, education, software development, and more, but we share one thing in common: we are passionate about the Bloomington community. We are in the process of developing a Helping Hands app that will be offered for free to the entire community.
