It's About Norwich after all (Norwich Coordinators are there to help out)

A lot of effort has gone in to make this a reality and yes we need your help as well.

Hello Norwich and Upper valley residents. I am posting this announcement with links to make you aware of a program that could help you and your neighbors. There is a link to a Google document that you can fill out to either help or possibly receive help and or guidance during this difficult time. We are all in this together and together we can come out of this and still be Norwich Strong.

Here is the announcement that was on this mornings List Serv.

Info on Neighborhood Coordinators.   Thank you to Melissa Scanlan (and all
those who volunteered) for pulling this together and keeping track of the

Thanks for keeping it local,

Dear Neighbors,
We are a group of volunteers who have divided Norwich into neighborhoods
with volunteer Area Captains as a way to manage our collective response to
COVID-19.  If your Area Captain has already been in touch with you, you
don’t need to do anything more in response to this message.  For the rest
of you, *please* fill out this form to
opt in to our Norwich Neighborhoods Check-In program.

This is a work in progress!

Norwich is a community where we show up for our neighbors. Many people are
volunteering ways to help and others are in need of help. We have created
this form to collect information to assist our community with volunteer
coordination of mutual aid. An aim is to help streamline the processes of
asking for and giving help.

Our priority is to establish an informal mode of connection between
neighbors.  Area Captains will see the information you provide on the form,
but it will not be publicly available.  If an Area Captain can connect
someone asking for help to someone seeking help, he or she will aim to do
so.  We will endeavor, as volunteers and to the extent we remain healthy,
to assist each other in being able to safely stay home, and have the means
to establish and stay in connection with one another.  While we are keeping
a safe social distance, we want to try to remain connected through this
pandemic.  Thank you for taking care of each other right now. For questions
or help with the form, please email Melissa Scanlan
call 649-7099.

Our next step is to review and codify responses in a way that makes it
easier for neighbors to reach out to one another.  Stay tuned for
additional communication from your Area Captains.
