With the current pandemic, it has been proven to be quite difficult to meet the seniors in person and speak to them as we normally do with the organization. We have found a way to continue speaking with seniors: Zoom. While we continue connecting with seniors, a new challenge has emerged: essential item deliveries to those at high-risk for COVID-19. For this reason, Ramana and a partner started a platform called Fierce Helpers.
Fierce Helpers is an organization comprised of teenagers who deliver groceries and essential items to senior citizens due to the danger of these individuals going outside and shopping for groceries on their own. Fierce Helpers is currently seeking more volunteers, so feel free to register on the website! If you know anyone who could use this service, please feel free to let them know about Fierce Helpers and how they can simply place an order and have it delivered to them, ensuring their safety.
