HELP PEOPLE WHO SHOULDN'T LEAVE HOME

Older adults, and people with serious illness or disability, should avoid public settings as much as possible. However, they still need food and human interaction. Help others at high risk avoid unnecessary trips to settings where they could be exposed to coronavirus.  Look for ways to help your neighbors, relatives and friends who are older than 60 or have a compromised immune system, a chronic condition or a disability. Offer to pick up their groceries or whatever is needed from the pharmacy.  Get books from the library. Have conversation on the phone.

HELP SET UP TECHNOLOGY

Technology can do a lot to ease loneliness.   But, not everyone is equally comfortable setting up technologies.  Maybe you can help someone with a smartphone,  tablet apps, video chat, streaming video entertainment or telemedicine visits with doctors or other health providers. Offer to help as someone’s  “tech support” hotline.

HELP FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN

Consider helping with child supervision as schools and other facilities have closed.

  • Use caution and consider this may increase your risk or risk to those around you. 

  • Remember to keep the number of individuals present under 10.

  • Practice frequent and diligent hygiene.

  • Do not expose yourself to others who exhibit symptoms.

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

  • Consider other ways to help families:   take them a meal, run errands, offer prayer and encouragement.

GIVE BLOOD.

Schedule an appointment (no walk-ins accepted) for April 16, from 1-5:30 pm

Holy Angels Church in Sandusky

Temperature and blood will be checked at the door.

Thank you for all who donate.

Red Cross blood drive scheduled for Tuesday, April 7 at The Chapel has been cancelled.

 

Donations are needed. Perhaps you can give or encourage others to do so. Either way, you’ll help blood banks nationwide meet the need for blood, platelets and plasma. A need which will only increase.

An important note: Coronavirus has not been shown to be transmitted through blood transfusion. Visit the RED CROSS to find a blood drive near you, and read the latest Red Cross guidance for donating blood during the coronavirus pandemic.

SHOW GRATITUDE

One of the kindest things we can do is to say “thank you” to those who are doing what they can to fight the outbreak. It doesn’t hurt to send a message of thanks to people and organizations who are doing the right thing—whether it’s a tour group that offers refunds for cancelled trips, the neighbor who delivers a spare mask to you, or viral experts who give you straight-up information on how to stay safe. Gratitude begets gratitude. A viral effect we want!

SHOP LOCAL

Smaller businesses will be hurt by the pandemic. Shop your local stores for all the basic things you need. PLEASE…do not stockpile/hoard. If you have already, please consider sharing with those in need. Let’s be known for our love and generosity. For nonessentials (like hair salons, nail spas, coffee shops, and more), consider buying gift certificates to use in the future.
