We are witnessing a crisis never before seen in our lifetime. The disruption caused by Covid-19 is affecting the lives of billions across the globe, as we are required to adapt to new lifestyles for the unforeseeable future. In Oklahoma City, we have responded to many different disasters, and we have responded generously.
This pandemic has forced our government leaders to take unprecedented measures to help slow down the spread of this disease. The Oklahoma City Community Foundation has created the 2020 Disaster Relief Fund that will assist those in our community impacted by the virus, particularly those who are most vulnerable. The fund is flexible and will provide dollars for immediate needs to those seeking medical access, basic needs as well as provide help for our aging citizens.
