OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The coronavirus response is changing how people are raising money for those helping others in the community.

Allstate Insurance agencies usually provide hands-on help by doing volunteer projects for the Boys and Girls Club of Omaha, but this year, that's not possible.

Instead they are holding a virtual fundraiser. So far, they have provided 27,000 meals to the organization.

"We know that non-profits are under a real strain right now, and that because of school closures and rising unemployment the people that are hit the hardest are people that are already feeling the pains of hunger," said agent Jacklyn Weekley.

The fundraiser ends Friday.

To donate, go to https://bgcomaha.org/donations/ and mention its part of the Allstate virtual fundraiser.

In addition, "The Allstate Helping Hands Foundation plans to give the club a $10,000 grant.
