During the pandemic, we were able to partner with our volunteers and local companies to establish a Friendly Caller program to keep homebound seniors connected with someone by having a weekly phone call. Our office also connected seniors who needed assistance with vaccine and testing appointments online as well as ordering COVID-19 testing home kits. We had some volunteer youth groups also write notes to our area seniors and paired with a personal PPE bag with disposable gloves and masks, and hand sanitizing wipes.
Our organization is authorized to pick up Household Hazardous Waste, prescription and over the counter medication for safe disposal, on behalf of our senior clients within the guidelines set forth by the County of Santa Clara Consumer and Environmental Protection Agency.
