Ask for Help from the Community

Dear Friend,

During this crisis, we are all vulnerable in different ways. Love Whittier is a space for members in our community to help each other in this challenging season and beyond. Whether you need help getting groceries, setting up a zoom call, or someone to chat with, we are here to help.  Please, use the form linked here to request assistance in one of the listed areas. Once someone in the community signs up to help, you will receive confirmation. Though we may not be able to fix everything or meet every need, we truly believe we are stronger together. Thank you for being a part of our community. We are here for you!

Please note the following parameters:

-Assistance with free material goods from groceries to hygiene/household supplies will only be provided once a week or as supplies last. 

-If you can afford to buy your own items, but are not able to leave your home, please request assistance with errands rather than our free groceries/supplies options. If you select errands, you must order your items and pay in advance and then communicate the pickup information to the volunteer.

-Volunteers may not enter the residence or car of any recipient and should take precautions of wearing a mask and gloves if at all possible.

-Volunteers may not provide transportation for any recipient.

-We do not guarantee the fulfillment of any requests.

-A volunteer may decline to help if they become uncomfortable or have concerns for their own health or safety.
