HOW WE CAN HELP
Our Porch Angel volunteers exist to help the elderly and those that are immune-compromised within the church family of Geneseo Evangelical Free Church during this pandemic. As the Porch Angels schedules permit, their service includes grocery, supply, and pharmacy pick-up and delivery. The only cost to you is for the groceries, essential supplies, or prescriptions themselves.
Those that regularly attend Geneseo Evangelical Free Church will receive priority. Others in need will be considered as safety and our staffing allows.
HOW THIS WORKS
- Call the church office at 309-944-4667 Monday-Friday between 8:00 am – 3:00 pm, at least 48 hours in advance to request the service of a Porch Angel. The church staff member will assign a Porch Angel to you, and they will contact you personally to schedule their services.
- Provide the church your name, address, and phone number. If the Porch Angel is picking up prescriptions, please also provide your date of birth. Let your pharmacy know that a Porch Angel will be picking up your medications.
- Have instructions or grocery list written out with cash or signed check in an envelope taped to your door or put it in a sealed container outside your door with easy access. They will deliver the items, including your change, if there is any, to your door or Porch. They will not bring them inside your home because of health and safety reasons. PLEASE, do not invite them into your home for your protection and theirs.
- They will follow up with you by phone to let you know the items have arrived.
