Food pantries have quickly responded to the COVID-19 crisis by immediately seeking food from suppliers following CDC recommended guidelines and expanding distribution systems but still need financial assistance to help with cost-effective bulk food/supply purchases and other forms of support. Good Samaritan Network is currently unable to accept in-person volunteers or in-kind items, but financial donations will help feed the thousands of Hamilton County families in need safely and at a lower cost.
Aspire Indiana trains volunteers to manage "warm-line" connections. Common in areas where natural disasters such as hurricanes occur, individuals are trained to provide over-the-phone support to foster adaptive functioning in these chaotic times. This is not professional mental health supportive services but a trained, friendly ear with guidance on where to seed additional help if needed.
