New York City is at the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Robin Hood CEO Wes Moore wrote in a statement. “This crisis has created a whole new set of challenges for the millions of New Yorkers who already struggled to make ends meet. This is a moment where we must all come together and rise up together as a community in support of our neighbors and in support of one another.”
Rise Up New York! follows Robin Hood’s establishment of their Relief Corps with figures like Gwyneth Paltrow and Katie Couric as well as local sports teams who are helping raise money for COVID-19 relief through their personal networks.
