It's important to share the latest resources and efforts of local organizations as quickly as possible. However, this can be difficult to do without knowing who is doing what. We know with the rapidly changing developments, most news agencies could use an extra hand when it comes to getting the word out. It takes a lot of work to be in contact with every community organization and effort.
We have created automated tools to help news agencies find out about organizations' and individuals' COVID-19 response efforts.
What is the COVID-19 Impact Wire?
The COVID-19 Impact Wire is a way for news agencies to have real-time information of the latest events, fundraisers, programs, and services in the community. Participating local news agencies can choose to receive a daily email with all of the latest content from their city.
When local organizations add content to Village Creed's platform, they can opt to share their content with the local news agencies in their area. They can also indicate whether they would like to be contacted for an interview. With just a simple click, their stories, events, services, and needs will be shared with local media agencies like you!
All the latest information from your city is compiled into daily email. This puts the news right at your fingertips so you can promote the COVID-19 recovery efforts and resources available to local citizens. Are you ready to join? Sign up today at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the COVID-19 Impact Wire.
