KWT Mutual Aid describes itself as a volunteer organization created “by neighbors for neighbors.” The network started with the aim of collectively helping the community cope with the physical, mental, emotional and economic needs created by the pandemic. They partnered with local groups, organizations and volunteers to give support to vulnerable members of the community. Their main services include grocery delivery, check-ins, prescription pick-up, assistance accessing government benefits and the provision of emergency funds.
