Our older adults, and the staff who directly care for them, are increasingly vulnerable with the emergence of COVID-19. Your volunteerism and charitable help support our staff, and ensure physical distancing doesn’t lead to greater social isolation for our elders.
Brighten someone’s day with a simple phone call. Volunteers can provide companionship calls or be part of our Well-Being Companion Program.
Provide emergency funds for where the need is greatest, including groceries, iPads, and comfort boxes for elders who are in COVID-19 quarantine.
Bring connection and safety to our residents. Putting an iPad in every hand will help residents connect with family and access campus emergency information and wellbeing programming.
Give residents, staff, and families a virtual hug in the form of a pocket prayer shawl. These can be sewn, crocheted, or knitted.
Gather a group and adopt one of our households to provide ongoing, uplifting support for residents and staff in ways that build lasting relationships between our community and yours.
Sew masks for residents and staff.
Please contact Stacy at 651.288.3688 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, ideas, or to sign up as a volunteer.
Great volunteer opportunity for families, scouts, or youth worship groups. Make seasonal door decorations. Decorations should have a way to hang (approximately 5 inches). Email Stacy at email@example.com to coordinate numbers and seasonal themes.
Join us in making the holiday brighter for our residents of Episcopal Church Homes. Each residents is provided a gift they have personally requested.

Erna Carlstrom recently celebrated her 105th birthday at Episcopal Homes. Because of technology available on her floor, she was able to connect with several out-of-state family members before her celebration on campus.
