RECEIVING FOOD FROM UCOM WITH COVID-19 CONSIDERATION:
At this time, UCOM will be open, but modify how we interact to stay aligned with the city’s ‘social distancing’ efforts.
Our first priority is our volunteers, our most valuable resource, and the neighbors we are serving. If you have a fever, or feel unwell – stay home and get better. Call if you need food delivered. If you have been tested or are being treated for suspicion of Covid-19, please let us know.
UCOM will operate as a drive-thru pantry for the next two weeks. No client will come into the building – our doors will stay locked. Our ESC Manager will have the appointment list and stay outside to check off arrivals. No one will have contact with clients, only their cars:
If you are able to come and volunteer, we need you, especially to pack groceries. But, all volunteers are asked to follow their doctor’s recommendations and set the boundaries they need. We honor and support your needs. We will not accept ‘drop in’ volunteers over next week, and no teenagers will be volunteering. We will need more help, and I am pre-screening any additional volunteers to limit any volunteer to volunteer risk.
As deliveries are scheduled, I will send you all an email ‘heads up’ so you will know if there will be additional unloading.
As donations show up – we will have them placed outside on a table; as able, volunteers will gather and bring into building. Our goal is to have no one but approved volunteers in the building over the next two weeks while we work to keep our scheduled clients’ needs met.
