Strong communities come together in uncertain times and GNG is showing its giving spirit! Grass-roots volunteer groups have already been collecting food donations and trying to reach our neighbors in need. In an effort to connect our community with the local resources, the Community Wellness Outreach Program was developed to help gauge the unique needs of families during an emergency situation.
The foundation of the program is to help those in our community who are in need during these unprecedented and challenging times. Families and individuals who present a need at any level are encouraged to contact the Parks & Rec office (or enroll below). We will work to find available resources, programs, and volunteers to help alleviate the burdens our families are challenged with.
How does it work?
If you or your family need support, please register below (or call the Recreation Office 657-2323). A staff member or volunteer will call you to learn about your needs and which resources may be helpful.
If you’re feeling well and looking to help, please register below as a volunteer. Volunteers can help make a pickup or delivery, talk with neighbors over the phone, help with donation logistics, help us reach the less-connected neighbors, etc. Registered volunteers will need to successfully complete a background screening.
Much of the focus will be helping individuals and families within the community with their basic needs involving food insecurity and/or isolation, but we truly want to try to support on all levels. Once enrolled in the program, we plan to reach out on a weekly basis to address any needs or questions that might have arisen in the past week as well as inform folks about new resources that might be available to them.
Our hope is to help build a stronger community during a time of social distancing, especially for our older adult population. With the ever changing times we currently find ourselves in, this program will continue to evolve and grow as needed and as we are able. We want to support our community in the social distancing efforts as much as possible to do our part to help flatten the curve.
