We are here. Every Day.
Reach out when you or someone you care about needs a hand. If you could use information, help, a listening ear or ways to make someone else feel really good, contact us at 603-795-0603 or help@CCLyme.org. We partner with organizations and generous volunteers to connect you with just the right resources and opportunities to get involved: Deliveries or errands. Groceries or meals. Handy help around home. Holiday ideas and cheer. A little help problem-solving. You name it.
The Lyme Organizations and Services Directory.
Here’s the link! We appreciate the interest and those who’ve helped to spread the word, since the link was removed from the bottom of Lyme Listserv messages earlier this year. We’ll also add it to the bottom of all of our own messages. This is a searchable, online, frequently-updated listing of individuals, organizations, and businesses serving Lyme. We welcome listings of services provided by Lyme community members and those serving Lyme, with a Lyme referral. We do our best to keep up with changes and depend on reports of needed edits from those listed and their users. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to suggest changes. Thanks!
The Lyme Food Pantry will be open on Tuesday.
At 1pm, all are welcome to our “Farmers Market” display of Willing Hands produce. You can order a food package at 795-0603, or stop by. We’re working on plans for special holiday offerings and safe distribution of food as the weather turns cold. Your ideas and requests are most welcome!
If you are a school family with concerns for your own or fellow families, we’d like to help.
This quick form allows you to consider and share your situation, needs you may have, and ways you may help others. Complete it if you like, or just reach out by email or phone. If you could use help getting through the day or weeks, call 603-795-0603. Together, we’ll work through the pieces and come up with a way to make it work for you.
Coming up this week:
Please be extra-careful about keeping yourself and others safe and healthy. Wear an appropriate face covering when you are in public. Keep a safe distance. Stay home if you are sick at all. And please be kind, as you encourage others to practice safe behaviors. ❤️ ?.
