In the series of donations to support Coronavirus relief, Opus Regulatory has provided financial assistance to the following causes:
Innovation at United Way is now taking another step forward. We’re launching COVID-19: Invisible Problems. We are all deeply saddened that the virus is causing tragic loss of life, lost jobs and severed connections. But COVID-19 is also creating numerous problems that could go unnoticed, such as the loss of a support group that helps people manage addictions. One challenge often leads to another.
As part of Invisible Problems, United Way’s Innovation Team is creating a new digital platform that will allow users to submit, prioritize and solve problems through crowdsourcing. It’s a new way for us to engage people in the issues they are facing in their communities and help solve them collectively using today’s tools. To that end, tell us what you’re hearing and seeing in your communities. Visit unitedway.ideascale.com and submit a problem that needs our attention.

We are donating all of our masks, gloves, PPE’s and other items needed to fight the COVID19 to these heroes.

Until then, Project C.U.R.E. will continue to change our world. Right now, our world is right next door.
