There may be a time in our lives when we need some help. It can take a lot of courage to reach out and ask. But if and when something happens to you, the Care Council wants to set the gears in motion to provide what assistance we can. In order to do that, we need your help.
Have you ever had a medical procedure that required a driver to take you home? These can be simple things like dental work requiring an anesthetic, or a colonoscopy, glaucoma surgery or a number of other common surgeries. I’m wondering if you ever returned home after a crisis, or the death of a loved one, to stand alone in the kitchen late at night with a bowl of cold cereal. What if you’re exhausted from caregiving, or feeling frightened and alone after losing a job, or perhaps the loss of a beloved pet who may be your best friend? How about those times of joy, a marriage, a birth or adoption, or a special birthday?
We on the Care Council are asking for your help in providing transportation once in a while, or to make a supportive a phone call; perhaps a casserole, or a hearty bowl of soup for someone who could use a comforting meal. The heartwarming joy of receiving a card or an email that simply says, “I’m thinking about you because I care,” is boundless and enduring.
Please join us in our mission of caring for each other by contacting one of the Congregational Care Council members, Anne Laukaitis, Nancy DeLux, or Michelle Murphy. Sign-up sheets are also available on the back counter.
Thank you for being a part of our caring community!
