Planning in the midst of a pandemic is new for everyone, especially us. However, as a first responder organization and a source of food for the poor and marginalized, we are listening to health officials, state government and on what others are doing across the globe to deal with the crisis. We are sharing our internal and external game plan, as it might be of interest / helpful for you moving forward.
Until further notice:
Our doors will remain open and we have gloves, disinfectant and hand sanitizer to support anyone on staff who would like to further clean their workspace.
Asked that anyone on our team who has a fever and/or symptoms of acute respiratory illness must stay home and not come to work until they are free of fever (e.g. 100F or lower) or any other symptoms for at least 24-hours, without the use a fever-reducing or other symptom-altering medicine (e.g. cough suppressants).
Asked teammates if a family member is sick with an acute respiratory illness, the employee may not return to work until 14 days after the family member became symptomatic.
A mandatory 14-day quarantine for all staff if in the event someone at Reflections of Trinity tests positive for COVID-19/Coronavirus.
Our Community Plan
We are working on contingency plans to keep the community’s best interest first. We will:
Ask volunteers (or volunteer family members) that have been exposed to COVID-19 self-quarantine and NOT volunteer with us for at least 14-days.
Continue to serve food through the pantry’s normal distribution hours, Saturdays 9am – 1pm.
Volunteer hours: Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 10am – 4pm and Saturday from 8am – 2pm.
If you are a new client to our food pantry please be aware of the following:
- Please bring a Driver’s License or state-issued ID
- Be prepared to complete an intake form
Yes, we are accepting donations!
Because we are considered an “essential service” in our community, our doors remain open and we are still accepting donations of food as well as financial contributions. At this time we desperately need canned and dry goods, masks for volunteers, and financial support.
