Caregivers Have Responded To Elderly Affected by Storm
The offices of Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey (CVCJ) have been calling the over 2,000 homebound and frail elderly to assess their emergency need for food and medicine.
CVCJ is a nonprofit agency whose mission is to assist the homebound, frail elderly with task which allow them to remain independent, in their own homes.
CVCJ volunteers have been stepping forward to fill as many requests as possible since numerous elderly residents remained in their homes and now have no support to help them in the storm’s aftermath.
According to Executive Director, Lynette Whiteman, “The response of our volunteers has been inspiring. Some of our volunteers have lost their own homes and have no power, yet are willing to help someone in need. We are extremely proud to be part of this caring community”.
If you or someone you know does not drive and is over 60 years old and in need of emergency groceries or medicine, you can call the CVCJ office at 732.505.2273 and they will do their best to send a volunteer to help you. You can visit their web site at www.caregivervolunteers.org or email email@example.com for help as well.
