Post Date:03/30/2020 10:14 AM

UR COMMUNITY CARES (UCC) is a secure online resource that connects volunteers with community members who are age 70 and older or 18+ and have a physical injury or disability and are in need of assistance with household errands and other tasks.  UCC is up-to-date and compliant with the CDC’s COVID-19 protocols.  It’s free for residents or groups to enroll online, complete a background check, and then schedule assistance for household tasks/errands, yard work and companionship visits (currently via remote/distant contact). 

Services include (but are not limited to) shopping and drop-off of food and other essentials including medical supplies, pet walking, taking out the trash, yard clean-up and anything else that provides peace of mind in difficult times. Once enrollment is done, “Community Deeds” can be scheduled quickly online, completed within a day or a few days at most, and repeated as needed (weekly, monthly or intermittently).  To get started, visit www.URCommunityCares.org.  UCC founder and president Michelle Puzzo can be reached at 860-430-4557 or info@urcommunitycares.org.

Please share this valuable resource with anyone you think may find it helpful.
