To Our Community and Friends:
We have been brainstorming about ideas on how to have people help our clients. Our office has been inundated with wonderful offers of help.
In an effort to utilize these volunteers in the very best way- we have developed an “Adopt a Senior” program- the basic idea is that our home delivered meal clients would be paired with an outside volunteer who would agree to check on that client by phone- and see what that client may need on a personal level. This may be food delivery to the porch- toilet paper drop off- picking up items at the store etc.
The client and the volunteer would both agree to this and understand they both respect the social distancing requirements and CDC recommendations.
After this event is over we hope that these community volunteers will continue the relationship with the client.
Many of our clients are very ill and have no family support- Charleston has the most giving people anywhere- and they have risen to this challenge like any other.
We have only just developed this plan- so those that wish to be part of it should contact our office via email and watch our Facebook for more info. We are currently getting client permissions to get this rolling.
Monetary donations and food donations are always welcome- as our food pantry will be seeing many more needy families in the weeks to come.
Please let me know if you have any other questions,
