It’s incredible how a phone call can brighten your day!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Seniors and others experiencing social isolation are more likely to experience loneliness or other emotional distress. We want to connect seniors who would benefit from a friendly phone call visit with carefully screened volunteers who want to help. ⠀
We are now shopping for seniors and other individuals who can not do their own shopping due to COVID 19 restrictions. Shopping is done weekly or bi-weekly, by a volunteer. Person pays for their groceries but there is no charge for delivery or drop off.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Referrals to the program can be by self-referral, friends or family, community services and medical professionals.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Referrals can be made by phone, fax or email. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
