Host and Common Impact CEO Danielle Holly is joined by Jim Alvey, Director of Partnerships at Good360, for a conversation on disaster relief, COVID-19 and the importance of needs-based donations – giving the right product at the right time to serve people effectively. Good360 is a “matchmaker” of in-kind products that connects companies with unused or excess products to nonprofits that need them in order to respond to disasters in their communities.

June is the unofficial start of storm season, a time when natural disasters create a high demand for in-kind donations. This season is expected to be especially difficult as we continue to cope with and recover from COVID-19 at the same time. Jim talks about this and other challenges COVID-19 has posed for Good360, as well as how the organization and its corporate and nonprofit partners have risen to the occasion, delivering PPE and other vital supplies to those in need.
