Volunteer During The COVID-19 Crisis

Dear Neighbors:   With the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the most affected populations has been our seniors, who are at high risk for severe illnesses or complications from the virus. As a result, many of our seniors are advised not to leave their homes, so they might not be able to access the services and resources they need, or feel increasingly isolated during this pandemic.   During this time, it is critical that we reach out to our seniors. My team and I are planning to make calls to our seniors in District 2, and we are looking for volunteers to assist us with this important task. The calls will serve as a way of checking in with our neighbors to see what their needs are, and to make them feel supported. In a time of social isolation and physical distancing, a phone call may just be the assurance that they need to know that we are always here for them.   If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the form here.   Once the form is complete, our office will connect with you in the near future regarding contact information for seniors living in the neighborhoods of District 2. You will be provided a script with information that you can pass along helpful information to our seniors.   Please feel free to share the form with anyone you know who may be interested. Every little step we take in reaching out to folks will go a long way in helping to combat COVID-19!   Thank you, Ed
If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact my office at 617-635-3203 or ed.flynn@boston.gov.   ‌
