How to Help During COVID-19


Tips to help those in need during COVID-19:

Reach out to neighbors you know who are safer at home including older adults and those with underlying health conditions. Some ways you can help:

  • Keep a positive attitude as much as possible
  • Take out and pick up trash cans
  • Bring the mail or newspaper to the front porch
  • Walk the dog(s)
  • Move the car for parking purposes
  • Send a care package
  • Drop off or pick up letters or packages at the post office
  • Video chat, call, email or text to let them know you are thinking about them
  • Bring meals or schedule meal delivery
  • Shop or run errands
  • Pick up prescriptions or over the counter supplies

One way to help neighbors that you know is to drop off a Kindness Card to let them know you’re here to help

Here’s how:

  • Print the Kindness Card at home (DOWNLOAD HERE)
  • Cut the Kindness Cards (each sheet of paper has two cards)
  • Fill in your contact information and check the items you’re able to do
  • Drop the Kindness Card off to the neighbors that you know or tape it to their front door
  • If your neighbor answers the door, remember to practice physical distancing and remain 6 ft. away

2. Place items on the doorstep

3. Step six feet away from the door

4. Wait for the neighbor to open the door

5. Wave, say hello and ask them how they’re doing!
