Got an empty RV sitting around? Want to help out a first responder who might need a place to stay to as they battle COVID-19?
Check out the Facebook group RVs 4 MDs To Fight Corona Virus, a group established to match empty RVs with people who are exposed to COVID-19 on the job.
The group already has more than 15,000 members and has the mission, “This group is for Frontline Healthcare Workers in need of an RV and RV Owners willing to lend out an RV for Free Only Please!”
Here’s how it works for those with an RV to lend after joining the group:
STEP 1: Post a picture, City, State, and make sure to read the pinned group disclaimer.
Any healthcare providers in need of an RV/trailer for temporary living are asked to post a comment on a listing they are interested in to requesting an RV with some details on why and the City and State they are in.
STEP 2: All RV owners and healthcare workers in need, please submit this form and we will get to work on matching you: https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLSdcHtnhKg69tPZXqi…/viewform
“Please invite all health care workers in need and those with RV connections,” the group announcement reads.
“We can save thousands from exposure!”
Anyone interested in in volunteering to coordinate efforts in your area and/or help our matchmaking leaders, please can join this group instead:
Please make sure and “like” and “share” our Official Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter Pages as we will be posting successful match stories and follow-up there:
The group is nationwide but search FLORIDA in the search within the group and it will reveal RVs in the area.
Gary Lamoree posted a photo of his RV with this message: “Rv set up in citrus county Florida for use.”
ICU Nurse Jacq Javate in Orlando posted, “First of all, thank you for all the kind and generous people willing to help during this very difficult time. My sister and I are both ICU nurses in Orlando, Florida taking care of Covid19 positive patients. Our mom is currently on chemotherapy and Avastin therapy for ovarian cancer and we are both so scared of going home and exposing her to this terrible disease. She has been through a lot and this is the last thing she needs. We both know that if she gets this, she won’t have any fighting chance and we might not even have the opportunity to say goodbye. Just the thought of this makes me so upset. Please, my sister and I are willing to drive anywhere in Florida to pick it up and are willing to pay for professional cleaning whenever it’s time to bring the RV back. Thank you so much and God bless.”
Brittany LeCun posted, “Brevard county Florida here. I have campers of varies sizes. If you are in need please message me.”
The group asks that people share it and get the word out as soon as possible.
