In these trying times it is easy for some to feel hopeless or isolated. This is the time when communities like ours show why this is a great place to live and work.
The City of Louisburg is assisting the Louisburg Ministerial Alliance in getting the word out to those in need and potential volunteers in our community.
There are several things you can do now.
If you need someone to shop for groceries for you, there are volunteers willing to do that. If you have lost your job because of COVID-19 and need help paying for groceries or utilities, there may be help for that. There may be the possibility that volunteers will be needed to deliver meals/food.
To request help or volunteer, please call Faith Chapel, 837-2108; First Baptist Church, 837-4393; First Christian Church, 913-837-4760, Immaculate Conception Church, 913-837-2295; Journey Church, 913-777-1885; Louisburg Baptist Temple, 913-837-2979; or Louisburg United Methodist Church, 913-837-2374. The Ministerial Alliance is also accepting cash donations to reach as many in need as possible.
In the coming days and weeks you are encouraged to consider reaching out by phone or some other safe method to check in on your neighbors, friends or family. If you are healthy and have been part of one of the City “Buddy” programs, consider checking with your Buddy to see if they are doing alright or need something. Please also keep in mind that many businesses are still open. They will no doubt have taken measures to help reduce contact among themselves and others. The local pharmacies offer free in-town delivery, so consider utilizing that service rather than venturing out.
An Emergency Health Order was issued by the Miami County Health Officer today (March 18) closing all restaurants, dining facilities, bars, taverns and clubs to the dine-in public starting at 12:01 a.m. March 19 through 12:01 a.m. April 2. Please consider supporting Louisburg restaurants that will remain open for carry-out and curbside delivery although they may be on a minimal staff.
As this is a fluid situation details and information may be constantly changing. We may all have to get creative, but we can come together at least figuratively and become an even greater and more supportive community where we can remain close-knit and close to everything.
