DELIVER GROCERIES & MEDICINE TO SENIORS AND VULNERABLE INDIVIDUALS

Rotary District 5890 and Disaster Aid USA is joining forces with other districts in our Zone and with District 7620 (Central MD and DC) to deliver needed groceries and medicine to vulnerable people at risk of fatally contracting COVID-19. 
 
Through volunteers of Rotarians, Rotary & Rotaract clubs, the Rotary Club, individuals wanting to serve others, plus good friends, we want to build a network of people committed help those in need.
 
Join our effort to help our neighbors most at risk during the COVID-19 quarantine.
 

HOW IT WORKS

Between 9AM - 6PM Central Time, any high-risk individual (elderly, disabled, or severely injured person) unable to leave their home can call a designated number to coordinate grocery and medicine pick-up.
 
Interested volunteers and supporters are encouraged to:
  • Share the hotline number with people in need
  • Sign up to volunteer for ground support (pickups and deliveries) or remote support (participation in the call center, logistics, marketing).
  • Donate to the GoFundMe campaign
  • Follow and share the efforts of the team on Instagram and Facebook
