The Limerick COVID-19 Community Response group established to coordinate the volunteer effort to support the elderly and those with underlying conditions during the novel Coronavirus crisis has stated it is hugely encouraged by the reaction to the initiative. The service is up and running, with the trend showing that collection and drop off of shopping and prescriptions are set to be the most common tasks performed.
Limerick PPN is delighted to be supporting this initiative with the PPN represented on the Limerick Community Response Forum by the Secretariat Facilitator and Limerick PPN staff helping in the call centre.
Based at the Munster GAA headquarters – home also of Limerick GAA – contact has been growing by the day across both the volunteer email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, and the 1800 832 005 freephone helpline. An additional email address is also now available for people needing support email@example.com.
With the need for the centre, which operates from 8am to 8pm daily, set to increase over the coming weeks in line with the anticipated peak period for the COVID-19 pandemic impact here in Ireland, organisers of the initiative say that they have been heartened by the level of activity and welcome for the service already.
