YouGiveGoods was uniquely equipped to help nonprofits when COVID-19 hit. Billy Gonyou, Community Events and Food Drive Manager at Long Island Cares explains, “When New York shutdown, COVID-19 left us no choice but to adapt our methods of operating, and quickly. With the immediate cancellation of almost all of our food drives, I knew we had to strengthen our presence on YouGiveGoods' platform. We were forced to distance ourselves from normalcy, but connecting virtually allowed us to serve Long Islanders from the comfort and safety of virtual food drives.” Mr. Gonyou was able to leverage the YouGiveGoods platform and enlisted 125 individuals, groups and companies to start their own drives as part of Long Island Cares' COVID-19 Giving Event. Through his efforts and the support of the local community they raised over 100,000 pounds of food and were able to continue feeding their neighbors facing food insecurity during the COVID crisis.
