Helping our Seniors:
We are currently working with the TriCounty Area Active Adult Center in Pottstown. Additional volunteers will be in high demand in the coming weeks, if not months, to run errands, do grocery shopping, and/or meal deliveries for seniors. Please contact Eileen Dautrich at email@example.com if you would like to be placed on a volunteer list to be matched with your availability.
If you are interested becoming a volunteer, you can also register with RSVP where you will be matched with organizations that fit your availability.
Special Resources Available:
Angel Flight East - We provide free flights for patients in need of medical treatment far from home. We are screening all patients and pilots before flights to ensure they are not infected nor have been exposed to the virus. For info, please contact Jess Ames at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215.358.1900, www.angelflighteast.org
Thank you for your support and leadership!
If you have any questions or a local business that can provide additional resources and/or materials, please contact Eileen Dautrich at email@example.com.
An important announcement regarding food security for our community:
Our community has stepped up big time to offer food resources to those in need. To harness the power of this collective action and to stretch the food resources beyond the initial crisis, the Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities has generously agreed to coordinate the food insecurity resources in our area. Having a single point of contact will lessen duplication of service and will allow resources to stretch further. A single contact will also spread the services to be available over many days rather than all at once. If you are a business, organization or individual community member that is considering offering a community meal, food collection or other food related efforts, please consider contacting the Pottstown Cluster of Religious Communities at firstname.lastname@example.org for coordination and planning. Working together is our community strength!
