A Message from the Coordination Team
If you have been watching the news you are well aware that we are entering a new, challenging time regarding the worldwide outbreak of Covid-19. The government and medical community may turn to enforce social distancing measures such as staying home from work, limiting travel and recommended isolation.
If you are a senior or have underlying medical conditions or mobility issues, this may affect your ability to leave your house to grab groceries, prescriptions or essentials. Or if you are currently quarantined for any reason, there are able-bodied people in your neighborhood to help grab what you need with an easy system to manage the exchange of funds. Ideally, someone will drop it off for you at a coordinated time to ensure you get what you need in a safe and controlled fashion to minimize exposure while we try and ride the initial wave of infection out. This may be as simple as an e-transfer of funds based on your grocery list, an envelope of cash left for a designate etc. The details will be sorted out and conveyed to interested parties as you reach out.
If you are connected on social media, such as Dovercourt Facebook page, you can easily reach out and seek a neighbor’s help or let your neighbors know you can help them, if required. If you have a smart phone or computer and are tech savvy, “Next Door” is a great (and free!) app available for download on most smartphones which is an easy way to keep in touch with your neighbor's in real-time. I would recommend downloading it for updates and news in the neighborhood.
However, if you prefer and require help, contact: Daniel at 780-901-4552 or firstname.lastname@example.org OR Jo-Anne at 780-975-5193 or email@example.com. If you are able-bodied (and meet AHS recommendations) and willing to help, please let us know as well.
**We are only collecting data for Dovercourt residents at this time.
Based on your needs and the availability of volunteers we will coordinate drop-offs to ensure you have safe access to what you need if you’re required to self-isolate. If you do call and there is no answer, please leave a message and hang tight for someone to get back to you.
Being a good neighbor means open communication and pitching in to ensure everyone isable to remain safe, fed and healthy. Take care of yourself and remember you are not alone in this.
