The BHNA recognizes the need for all residents to follow the directives from public health experts and to protect themselves from the coronavirus. We also encourage everyone to help one another deal with this crisis, as we do when a hurricane strikes. We are very happy to alert you to the volunteer efforts of Gini Hosford West to coordinate Neighbor Helping Neighbor efforts.
Could you use some assistance during this time of community shut down and slow down? Gini Hosford West, Betton Hills resident and nurse, has volunteered to coordinate Neighbors Helping Neighbors assistance in Betton Hills. Gini actually launched this initiative last year as part of Betton Hills PREP Program (Plan for Readiness and Emergency Preparedness). PREP is not just for hurricanes!
Here’s how Gini says it works: “A Betton Hills neighbor will be there for you to run errands, pick up groceries, medicines, meals, anything you need! We can even just provide company if you are all alone and feeling totally isolated or even confused by all the news. We promise to screen first!”
If you know of a neighbor or someone that could use some assistance, please reach out to them to let them know there are neighbors to help if they are comfortable with that.
We will also spread the word in the BHNA newsletter that will be delivered in early April.
