Rotarians Doing What We Do Best!

Call to Action During COVID-19
I’ve been thinking a lot about the aging and the disabled population that we have here in Denver and how much a lot of them are struggling at the moment as a result of this social isolation.

While this isolation is necessary to protect each other and our community, there are a lot of people who aren’t able to do things like go out to get groceries, pick up their mail, or make sure that they have the right kinds of supplies to weather this storm. On top of that, the people that would normally be able to sit with them to keep them company aren’t being allowed in right now, which makes loneliness a significant concern.

These are people who are both members of our Club and members of the community at large…
I think we have an opportunity to really make a significant impact in our Club, on this community, and keep our distance socially, if we organize for some of the following service opportunities.

  • Grocery delivery
  • Calls, letters, etc. to help fight the inevitable loneliness that I’m sure they’re going to be feeling
  • Picking up mail or packages to be sent out or retrieved
  • Making sure that urgent supplies are provided for
  • And, of course, a funding drive to pay for things that they may not be able to afford at the moment

Some people are going to be more comfortable with more of these things than others, and that’s ok. But if we have some people who are willing to pick up groceries from the store and drop them off on doorsteps, some people willing to make calls, etc.

We can do something pretty amazing for some pretty vulnerable populations in Denver – inside and out of our Club.

How Can We Help You? 
We have teams of Rotarians who have stepped up to help each other and ready to serve.  We just need to know how we can help you!

This is an incredibly difficult time, there’s no question about that.  The need to isolate is wearing on all of us and revealing needs where we never thought we might struggle.

While this isolation is necessary to protect each other and our community, we know that many of us aren’t able to do things like go out to get groceries or make sure they have the right kinds of supplies to weather this storm.

Fortunately, this is where Rotarians shine.  We have teams of people ready, willing and able to help make sure your groceries get to your doorstep, make sure that you have the things you need to make it to the other side of this shelter in place time, and even just to pick up the phone and chat for a bit if you’re bored and need someone to talk to.

I know that it’s never comfortable to ask for help, but we’re here to step up and serve you.  You’ve done so much for us, now it’s time for us to give back.

Please fill out the survey below to let us know how we can help you during this time.
