HelpSLO is a local mutual aid Facebook group that started back in March of 2020 in response to the pandemic.
In addition to other activities, group members began building and filling pantries around the county where people can visit to pick up things like food or hygiene products for free.
Leah Wood is the founder of HelpSLO. She said the mutual aid group is a way for people in San Luis Obispo County to come together. She said people use the group for all kinds of help.
