BEFORE YOU HELP

Before you jump in to help, please consider other ways to serve if you are at risk or in contact with an at-risk group or their family members. According to the CDC, at-risk groups include older adults (over 60) and those with serious chronic medical conditions (inc. heart disease, diabetes, lung disease). Please stay home if you have symptoms including, fever, cough, or shortness of breath. 

Serve Safely: 

  • Use caution not to increase your risk or those around you. 

  • Do not consider serving in public if you are, or are in contact with any at-risk group or their family members.

  • Remember to follow State and Federal health guidelines. (Practice social distancing, keep to groups under 10, practice frequent & diligent hygiene.

  • Remember to restrict contact with at-risk groups to prevent the spread of illness.  ​

HOW TO HELP

 

HELP PEOPLE WHO SHOULDN'T LEAVE HOME

Look for ways to help your older and vulnerable neighbors, relatives and friends.  Check in on them. Run an errand. Be a friend.

HELP SET UP TECHNOLOGY

Technology can do a lot to ease loneliness.  Maybe you can help someone who is not tech-savvy. Assist with a smartphone, tablet apps, video chat, video stream entertainment or telemedicine visits.  Be someone’s “tech support” hotline.

SHOW GRATITUDE

One of the kindest things we can do is say “thank you”.  Everyone is giving up something in some way. Say thank you. Many are serving on the “frontlines” of the pandemic. Say thank you.  One of the best ways to beat back worry and fear is to simply express gratitude to someone around you.

SEND A CARD OF ENCOURAGMENT

​We know most of you have entered a NEW reality of homeschooling 📚✏️ — so here’s a great way to teach art class AND appreciate those in our communities on the front lines of healthcare. Simply have your kids spend some time this week making fun and COLORFUL cards with a note of thanks or encouragement. Drop them in the mail to your local hospital or health dept:

💌 Firelands Hospital 1111 Hayes Ave Sandusky

💌 Fisher Titus Hospital 272 Benedict Ave Norwalk

💌 McGruder Hospital 615 Fulton St Port Clinton

💌 Erie County Health Dept 420 Superior St
