COVID Helpers - This initiative provides safe & free delivery of goods to your residence. NEW: We are now expanding the service reach to include high-risk individuals (65+ and
 older or with a chronic medical condition) and households that have been asked to quarantine (due to possible exposure) and/or isolate (due to a positive COVID-19 diagnosis or presumed positive). 

 We are also expanding to include delivery of ANY purchased goods from local businesses.

 Purchased goods include: groceries, over-the-counter medications, prepared food, & non-food items.

 Anyone who is high-risk or under medical orders to quarantine due to possible COVID-19 exposure or isolate due to a COVID-19 diagnosis or presumed case may request a COVID-19 helper by:

 1. First, purchasing your goods online or over-the-phone at a local business.
 2. Second, calling 1-605-237-7234 and sharing pick-up information for your order.  *Make sure you give as much advance notice as possible to ensure we can align a volunteer for your order.
 3. One of our “COVID Helper” volunteers will then pick up your order and deliver it contact-free to your residence.

 Important information to know:
 ● There is no charge for the delivery.
 ● Anyone who is high-risk, under quarantine or currently sick with COVID-19 may request this service.
 ● Items must be purchased beforehand through the store, volunteers will not purchase items or handle money. If you need assistance purchasing your essential items, please call 211.
