Q: Why are you doing this?


A: Most of us volunteering are followers of Jesus Christ, and we believe that we are called to “love your neighbor as yourself.” (Mark 12:31). Jesus taught us that the greatest way to do this is to lay down our lives for one another. While we recognize the very real threat this virus poses to our world, we also see the great need that many people have because of it and we want to provide any relief and aid that we are able to. 

Q: What preventative measures are you taking to make sure you don’t spread the virus?


A: While our goal is to serve our community members, we recognize that this is a precarious time and what would be possible in normal circumstances is not possible right now. The last thing we want to do is spread the virus or actually do harm to the community through our efforts to help. 

We are making sure to follow the government and CDC’s recommendations through our aid. All volunteers will follow proper hand-washing protocol and maintain a six foot social distance as often as possible. If anyone begins to show symptoms or feel sick they will immediately end their volunteering to quarantine at home. If you feel sick or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please get in touch with a healthcare professional, or fill out our Request Assistance form and we will help you speak with a doctor. 

If you have a confirmed case of COVID-19 and are in need of assistance, please specify that you are sick on the form and we will make special accommodations to serve you in a way that keeps both you and our volunteers safe. 

We are consistently adapting as regulations and recommendations change and working to be in complete compliance with our government and The World Health Organization. We recognize that this is a constantly evolving situation and we are prepared to deal with these changes as they come. 

Q: What if I need help but I don’t live in those areas?


A: While our primary ministry is to our local neighborhoods, we would be glad to help you find ministries working in your area or point you towards resources who can help. 

Q: What can I do to help?


A: We have several opportunities for people who are interested to serve. Check out our “Volunteer” tab or “Donate” tab.
