Bainbridge Prepares has created a COVID-19 response online interactive database where residents can request help, donate to those in need, or offer to volunteer with specific outbreak related endeavors.

According to Bainbridge Prepares, “This site is designed to facilitate community preparedness and recovery.

“Residents can request help or sign up to donate and volunteer. Organizations can help by clicking ‘I Represent a Local Organization’ at the upper-right.”

Basic individual options include “I Have A Need,” “I Want to Give” and “I Want to Volunteer.”

The site also boasts a growing directory of restaurants offering to-go and curbside service.

“Island businesses are coming up with many creative ways to help us keep our social distance while we enjoy good food and restock our shelves,” reads the Bainbridge Prepares message. “Even with the statewide ban on indoor service, restaurants can still offer takeout and delivery. Your purchases will help our neighborhood businesses stay healthy.”

Already, as of early Wednesday, more than 25 restaurants and retailers have registered.

Bainbridge Prepares is an educational nonprofit organization committed to ensuring Bainbridge and surrounding communities will be resilient in the face of natural disasters and other calamities. Since 2011, they have worked in partnership with the Bainbridge Island Fire Department, and the city of Bainbridge Island joined the partnership in 2016.
