As you know this Coronavirus presents many challenges to our community. One of the challenges is to limit exposure to our parishioners that may be at ‘HIGH RISK”. So in an effort to shield our parishioners from this disease the Knights Council 8086 is offering a delivery service to our parishioners that are “high risk or quarantined”. This program is of no cost and is limited into delivering essentials from such places as the food store and/or pharmacy
We have establishing a delivery force to shop and establishing delivery times to provide maximum support we can. We will be categorizing our help request into three categories. Category 1 – parish elderly people (over60) that are “High Threat” and people that are “Quarantined”. Category 2 – people that have a need but are not deemed as Category 1. Category 3 – people that requested help. Help is offered only after Category 1&2 people requirements are filled and if our Knights Shield is capable.
Please understand that it would be very helpful if parishioners have a payment method established or can establish a payment method with food stores and pharmacies. For both our protection Knights want to avoid handling money, credit cards, etc. as much as possible. Currently, we have a working food payments with Publicx on Taylor Rd. Specifics will be explained to each person receiving the service and to all Knight Volunteers .
This will depend on Volunteer Knights and Parishioner Need based upon the attached survey. Everyone receiving services need to fill out a survey.
Also know that our knights are preforming this activity out of charity and will not be held liable.
If you are a Knight and want to help please contact Ernie at firstname.lastname@example.org The potential hours of operation is to pick up food at 8am and deliver by 11am this will happen two times a week. Days and times may fluctuate depending on need and operational restrictions. Volunteer Knights will wear rubber gloves and will leave food outside of doors.
This is a important Coronavirus message.
The Knights of Columbus has an important message for all parish members. If the virus has you quarantined / sick and you can’t shop, the Knights have a new program called “Knights Shield” where Knights will shop and deliver food and medicine to your home.
