October is Latin American Heritage Month and we got the chance to chat with Pablo Zacarias and Camilo Betancourt from Latincouver about how this year’s celebration events have changed because of COVID-19. With most of this year’s events being hosted online, Latincouver is working hard to make sure its community knows they are there to support others. Check out our conversation below!
The charitable sector needs community support now more than ever. If you’re like many of the businesses who have had to shut down, lay off staff, and face financial losses, you may be asking: “how can I possibly help when my own financial situation is so volatile?” Helping charities during COVID-19 is not limited to cash donations – there are other ways you can get involved by giving items, services, and time.
