Brunswick COVID-19

Information for Residents of Brunswick, New York

This page was created by a group of Brunswick friends and neighbors eager to help our community continue to thrive through this tough time.  

We have compiled a list of resources that all Brunswick residents can use to support themselves and their families during COVID-19.  We also have a Facebook forum where residents can connect with us and each other to give and receive help. 

  • Please share both webpages with all of your contacts in Brunswick.

  • Check back here often - we are constantly adding new information.  ​​

  • If there is a resource you need that you don't see on this site please  CONTACT US and we will do our best to help you! 

The health and safety of Brunswick's residents and businesses are very important.  Thank you for visiting this site and understanding that we are not medical professionals, nor associated with any government positions.  We are simply citizens trying to help other citizens in this time of need.

Brunswick Community Library

Please consider making a charitable contribution to our local library.  The library is a non-profit organization and the staff is finding creative ways to continue to maintaining their excellent services during this difficult time of closure.  Your gift will go toward many important library operations, including increasing free access to digital collections and providing online services to local populations in need.  You may donate online securely through PayPal, or mail your donation to the library: 4118 Route 2, Troy, NY 12180.  Thank you!

GiveDirectly

We’re responding to this crisis by doing what we’ve done for a decade: delivering cash. Each household will receive $1k, and we expect the main constraint on how many we can reach will be how much we can raise.

We’re beginning by targeting vulnerable households enrolled in SNAP, living in the areas hardest hit by COVID-19.

A message from the Brunswick Elk's Lodge:

In keeping with the Elks pledge that Elks Care, and Elks Share, we are looking for ways to help our Community in this time of need. We have applied to the Grand Lodges NF program for grant money to help our community Food Banks. We have been approved for funds to send directly to the Grafton Area Food Pantry, to help with the increased needs for people in our area. We also help the Brunswick Cares Community Food Pantry with donations as well. Any member who could help with donations of money or food and dry goods for this effort is urged to do so.

We are unable to hold fundraising events at this time to help our community, so we are looking for members to step up and do what they can.

If you are a member in need, let us know so the Elks can try to help!
In strict confidence of course:
