Food Access:

People in need, particularly our vulnerable populations, should contact Helpline if in need of food deliveries. As is our usual custom, we determine what services fit them the best based upon their information and make sure they receive the food they need either through our volunteer base or appropriate organizations, such as food pantries and Meals on Wheels, that can accommodate them.

Volunteers:

Please also send people wishing to volunteer our way. They will be matched with the appropriate programs/services/organizations. We are doing this in a safe and organized fashion so that our vulnerable populations receiving services, as well as those giving, are safe and protected.
All information -to the best of our daily updates - regarding community services/needs is listed on our Community Information page where our Relief Services Volunteer Application can be downloaded:
