There are so many great ways you can love and serve others right now. If we hear of any specific needs in our community, we will pass those along. Here are some other ideas:
- Donate items or bring a meal to Joshua Station (JS). The Director of JS says many of their families are struggling to get the basics, and because their common areas (including their kitchen!) are closed, they are in desperate need of meals. Detailed instructions for how to help Joshua Station can be found here.
- Stay connected with your neighbors. Volunteer to be a “block coordinator” by sending out an email to those you know and offer assistance to those closest to you who may become ill or are in a high-risk category. Don’t have contact information for your neighbors? Print a small card with info about what you’re doing with your contact info and leave it on their door.
outfrom restaurants more. If you are financially able, skip the deserted grocery stores and order take-out or delivery from your favorite restaurants. Don’t forget to tip – many restaurants are collecting tips for their employees who have been laid off. You can combine helping local businesses and neighbors by considering providing a meal for an at-risk or ill neighbor from a delivery service.
