We have made many adjustments due to the Coronavirus to help ensure your safety and the health and safety of those we serve. We are looking for low risk category individuals to come serve together! We are working out of our NEW! Community Support Center putting together food boxes for families in need. Please dress comfortably in closed toed shoes and we are asking volunteers to bring their own face covering/mask. We still need volunteers to come help us pack this food for our neighbors in need. However following CDC guidelines, all staff/volunteers at high-risk of severe illness from COVID-19 will be prohibited from serving at this time. Based upon available information to date, those at high-risk for severe illness from COVID-19 include: • People age 65 and older • People who live or work in a nursing home or long-term care facility • Other high-risk conditions could include: o People with chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma o People who have heart disease with complications o People who are immunocompromised including cancer treatment o People of any age with underlying medical conditions, particularly if not well controlled, such as those with diabetes, renal failure, or liver disease • People who are pregnant since they are known to be at risk with severe viral illness, however, to date data on COVID-19 has not shown increased risk Our community is in crisis, and the work of Catholic Charities meets a critical need. Our work is needed now more than ever, and we hope you can join us!
