https://conta.cc/34eY6Ui Congratulations Volunteers! You've been recognized by Leadership Fairfax as their Covid-19 Hero!
2020 HONOREE: COVID-19 HERO SHEPHERD'S CENTER OF FAIRFAX - BURKE & SOUTH COUNTY The Shepherd’s Center of Fairfax-Burke (SCFB) is a nonprofit that helps older adults continue to live independently in their own homes. A variety of support services and enrichment programs are provided by older adult volunteers who use the knowledge and skills acquired over their lifetimes to offer assistance to their peers. SCFB provided uninterrupted AND free transportation to medical appointments and to grocery stores throughout the COVID-19 pandemic to older adults living independently in their own homes, and their volunteer service didn't stop there. At the onset of the 'stay at home' orders, SCFB reached out to over 200 isolated older adults with weekly friendly phone calls ensuring help by maintaining a human connection and making sure they were safe in their homes. That initial outreach continues today - volunteers average over 50 hours per month checking in with clients. SCFB pivoted to free on-line Zoom chair yoga classes open to anyone who wanted to join. Close to 100 participants log-in 3 times a week to join others maintaining their health and being physically active while staying at home. Keeping active both physically and mentally(learning how to use new technology), are key to living one’s best life. SCFB's nomination form shared feedback from clients which stated "SCFB has been a lifesaver! Your volunteers always make me smile and I don't know what I'd do without you." Join us December 18 to celebrate Shepherd's Center of Fairfax - Burke & South County for their selfless and caring service to the community and their innovation in finding ways to continue to stay connected and help others during the pandemic. Register here: https://leadershipfairfax.org/event-4060783
SCFB/SC has won the Covid-19 Heroes award from Leadership Fairfax! Celebrate our volunteers on December 18th.
