Dear Durham contacts,

 
We have put together a website (www.DurhamTogether.com) and an associated Facebook page (“@DurhamtTogether”) that are intended to help people living in or near Durham during the coronavirus crisis. 
 
Each contains a list of local places that are currently open for purchases of food, take-out meals or medications. There is also a second list (shown in the website and available via a link from the Facebook page) showing volunteers who are willing to collect and deliver these items when requested to do so by Durham residents who can’t or shouldn’t leave home.
 
We hope you find these useful during this difficult time. If you have suggestions for improvements or changes, or would like to be added to the list of volunteers, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.;
 
Feel free to forward this email to others.
 
Best regards,
