There are already first projects and more than 100 volunteer supporters. As #covid19 not only the health system and the economy, but also the public administration and social institutions – especially at the "first responder" level in cities and counties – are under severe strain, the initiative was launched to help easily with technology/talents that are often not available on the ground. Public/social services in need of help, voluntary techies and other partner organisations can contact them via the website (needs and talents are reviewed by the initiative). - Link to the initiative in the comments. If you know someone who might need it or maybe would like to help on a voluntary basis, please link in the comments!

For more information check out their website: https://digital-response.de/.

Unfortunately, since the target group is the German public and social sector, all information is in German for now.
