Dear OLA Volunteer,
OLA wants to stay connected with our Parishioners needing assistance during this Coronavirus shelter-in-place time. God bless you for volunteering to help. If you have any questions, please contact Laura Elmore at (650) 796-2185.
There are three tangible ways OLA Volunteers can assist: 1) Meals, 2) Essential Supplies, and 3) Other - all outlined below. The OLA Rectory Staff will be the central communication point for our Volunteers. When a need arises they will email (preferred) or call you and then provide the parishioner name, address, phone and specific task of:
1. Meal Drop off: Prepare and drop off a simple entree at the doorstep (no contact) of an OLA Parishoner.
2. Essential Supply Drop Off: Go to the store or purchase on-line an essential item(s) and have it dropped at the doorstep (no contact) of an OLA Parishioner. You may make arrangements with the OLA Parishioner for reimbursement.
3. Other: Let us know about other areas you may be willing assistance: e.g. RN, teach Seniors how to purchase supplies on-line, talk to the distressed or homebound, etc.
Click on the signupgenius below, selecting one or both of these volunteer roles. Note: The date next to volunteer area is just the starting day, and this will continue during the shelter-in-place.
This situation is evolving rapidly, and our intent is to build up a volunteer base as needs may expand. In the early stages, requests may be light, but we want to be prepared for the future if needs escalate. Remember..........we are Easter people and we are the Body of Christ. So thank you for being Jesus' arms and legs and serving others during this challenging time.
May God richly bless you.
Father Michael Mahoney, OLA Rectory Staff and OLA Outreach Team
