“I genuinely would like to request that folks aid nonprofit corporations even if they are not able to have their in-person gatherings. They need to have the group assistance now,” said Miles.

Baker hopes donors will continue on to assistance them, and folks in the neighborhood will be knowledge of these changing functions.
