A Facebook group called St. Cloud Area Prepper Pals was recently created to provide a network for people who need financial support, transportation help, food and other essential goods.

Since being created, the group has already racked up up over 1.2 thousand members. If you're in need, you can fill out a form posted on the groups page and they will try to help you find the resources you need.

If you're interested in helping the effort, you can go to the page and fill out a volunteer form to let them know what kinds of things you're willing to help out with.

COVID-19 can survive in the air and on surfaces, so the group is working on creating a sterile-drop protocol for volunteers to follow if they choose to help deliver items to community members in need and keep themselves safe.
