Schenectady County COVID-19 Emergency Response Coalition Launched to Meet Needs of Community During Coronavirus Pandemic
Schenectady County announced the creation of the Schenectady County COVID-19 Emergency Response Coalition. The County is partnering with The Schenectady Foundation, The Boys and Girls Club, and other local organizations to address the basic needs of the community during the coronavirus epidemic. The Coalition will operate a hotline out of the new Boys and Girls Clubhouse in Mont Pleasant.
The Coalition was created to help address those issues; and ensure those who are quarantined or isolated, seniors, and other at-risk individuals get the basic supplies they need while they remain at home. The main focus of the Coalition is delivering groceries and other essentials during this difficult time, while also identifying services offered by partner organizations for those with additional needs.
Schenectady County residents in need of supplies should call (518) 621-3536. Staff will work with callers to identify their needs, including any dietary or allergy restrictions, and set up a drop-off time. Representatives from the County Department of Social Services will also be on hand to assist with shelter, temporary assistance programs and Medicaid issues. Staff will also have information about resources available to address other identified needs.
PLEASE NOTE THE NEW HOTLINE NUMBER LISTED ABOVE!
