Deliveries for the homebound during the COVID-19 crisis
Tiverton Cares is working with the Tiverton Senior Center to deliver bagged lunches to residents who cannot leave their homes because of the heightened risk of illness. Along the way, we're checking in with them and bringing essential groceries and supplies. If you are interested in helping with deliveries, please email us.
We are also taking donations to help seniors and others who are struggling through this crisis. If you or somebody you know needs help, please use our Neighbors Helping Neighbors form.
Although we're a lean organization that does its giving on a case-by-case basis, we do have some ongoing costs. General donations are always welcome and increase our ability to respond quickly to arising needs.
Neighbors Helping Neighbors
Tiverton Cares' flagship program is Neighbors Helping Neighbors. Wherever there are gaps, where people have needs that are too small or unique to be covered by bigger programs from larger charities or government, we try to step in. Some recipients have been the tough stories you may have seen in the news, and others are families who have just needed a quiet helping hand for groceries or something else.
Tiverton Cares is also fortunate to have the support of a broad pool of talented people with specialized skills, from carpentry to computers to law. We can't guarantee that we can fill all needs, but we can at least try to point our neighbors in the right direction.
If you or somebody you know could use this sort of assistance, fill out the following form. All information received is completely confidential and will not be used for any purpose other than to help.
