Groceries & Pharmacy Trips
Are you locked-down due to your age or medical challenges, or in quarantine due to the coronavirus? CERT volunteers can assist with shopping and delivering groceries and/or medication prescriptions. Our team has completed hundreds of trips to various stores from Ralphs to Trader Joe's, and from CVS to Walgreens.
Do you live alone, want to connect with the outside world, or are anxious during these uncertain times? Call (310) 802-5010, and you'll be partnered with a wonderful volunteer from your community. One seniors has shared, "I don't really need too much help (with groceries), but it is nice to talk with someone, and to know that I have backup."
Senior Meals Delivery
Senior Meals is a weekly meal-delivery service to provide ready-made meals or meal-kits from top local restaurants and caterers such as Good Stuff and Sky Chef. Senior Meals was developed by Beach Cities Health District in response to Governor Newsome's Great Plates program.
Chefs for Seniors meals are customized for personal dietary needs, e.g. diabetes, low sodium, and etc. Weekly meal-delivery can also be prepared in at the client's home for an extra fee.
Masks, Flowers, Cards & More
Need a cloth mask or a little pick-me-up? CERT Volunteers have been dropping off homemade cloth masks, seasonal bouquets, and Kindness Cards written by students. Each Kindness Card expresses a positive message in a handmade card to brighten your day.
We have had numerous masks and cards generously donated by community members and organizations, including from CERT family members and The National Charity League.
