In light of the suggestions that have been made to shelter-in-place, self-quarantine, and keeping a safe distance due to the Covid-19 outbreak, some of our Hope members have volunteered to begin a new ministry. This is available to members of our congregation and others in our local communities that may be having difficulty in getting out to shop for essentials such as food items, personal hygiene products, or household cleaning items. Some of those are the elderly, others may be people who have had
recent surgeries, those going through rehab, or who do not have transportation at this time.
We have in our congregation people who are willing to deliver these types of items to your door, free of charge! If this is a service that you could use, or if you have a neighbor, friend, or family member who may have no way of getting out to shop, please contact us with a reasonable list of items that you are in need of and they will gather as many of these items as they can and their team of volunteers will deliver them to your door. You will not have to worry about making physical contact needlessly, the volunteer will call before arriving, will then ring your bell and leave the items at your door. In the event that you need help carrying items into your home, arrangements can be made for that as well. One other item of note is that we have access to some gently used baby and young children's clothing items that can also be delivered. Contact us to learn more about these items.
In addition, we are asking all of you to be on the lookout for people in our community who are in need of this type of service. Ask around, check up on your neighbors. This is a time when as faithful, compassionate Christians, we need to keep an eye out for those who might be in need around us, if only for a comforting word of reassurance.
