It’s times like these when we need to stick together. Though it may not be the easiest thing to do, considering the social distancing regulation, there are still many ways we can be there for one another during this time.
Stay connected with friends, family, and neighbors through technology. Worried about your elderly neighbor, but can’t go over to check on them? Give them a call, or message them on social media. Check in on family you haven’t heard from lately and friends who may be located somewhere else. There will be many of us staying home that might need help with supplies and company. Do your part in helping those in need of supplies by offering some of yours, and if someone just needs to talk? Offer a listening ear. It’s little things like this that make the biggest difference.
Reach out to friends and family to see if they need someone to watch their children, or to see if they are able to watch yours. Schools being closed creates a new challenge for working parents who need proper child care during the day while they work. Your best resources are the ones you know and are familiar with; friends, and family. It doesn’t hurt to ask them for help. You can also offer your services back to them as well.
There are a number of schools, businesses, churches, food pantries, and mutual aid networks that are offering food assistance for people facing nutritional challenges during this time. We want to encourage you to stay connected and in contact with your local organizations to get information about possible food assistance.
Remember to be supportive, kind, and respectful to one another. You have no idea how stressed someone may be, or what they may be going through personally.
