COVID 19 Volunteer

Congratulations faith leader, you have been entrusted by your faith community to extend your mission to others in your community and beyond.  Home bound seniors and persons with disabilities are looking for volunteers to deliver groceries, food, and personal health supplies to meet their basic needs. Having a friend to connecting with during COVID19 isolation is a basic need. 

Please fill out the following form and it will be submitted to Erin Davis at South Central Area Agency on Aging.  Seniors are encouraged to call SCAAA to be assigned a volunteer.  If you have any questions, email Erin.Davis@nebraska.gov.

This process has been developed through conversations hosted by Buffalo County Community Partners and bringing many partners together to solve emerging needs in Buffalo County. We always enjoy hearing from our volunteers. If you have ideas to improve processes or meet needs of our community please contact Denise Zwiener at dzwiener@bcchp.org.
