I hope you and your family are safe and healthy at this moment. To the members of our BIG community who have had Covid-19, our thoughts, prayers, and hope for accessible health care go out to you and all during these difficult times. BIG’s team is working hard to bring Brookline residents live, timely and important local, state and federal updates and other community meetings during the Covid-19 pandemic.
We’re upgrading our fiber connection and streaming equipment, training our elected officials and community organizations on web conferencing tools, and helping them improve their home internet setups. With some encouragement from BIG, the Brookline Police Department created their own video tour of the Brookline Emergency Operations Center!
Here are some important links to local resources we’ve compiled:
- Town of Brookline General COVID-19 Alerts
- Town of Brookline Small Business & Nonprofit Resources
- Brookline Nonprofits Providing COVID-19 Resources
There are many nonprofits who will need the support of Brookline residents through this difficult time, and BIG is working to make sure that our entire nonprofit and small business community is supported through our communication initiatives.
If you are able, please also consider a donation to BIG among the vital organizations you choose to support. BIG’s 2020 budget has already lost thousands in funding from our in-person classes, events, programs, and memberships. We additionally suspect that our cable-based fees will also decline as more cable cutters jump to Internet-streaming only accounts during the pandemic.
Thank you, and be well.
-The Team at BIG
