You are the reason we’re here.
If you’d like information, help, a listening ear or, maybe, ways to make someone else feel really good, contact us at 603-795-0603 or help@CCLyme.org. Groceries or meals. Deliveries or errands. Help around home. A little help problem-solving. You name it.
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 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 get caught on the wrong side of covid symptoms some morning and could use help figuring out how to get 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. That would make our day.
It’s Suicide Awareness Month. Take Care.
It is a difficult time. The pandemic is exacerbating long-standing mental and behavioral health challenges and helping to create new ones. There are many places to go if you or someone you know is in crisis or a deepening sad or unhealthy place. Please see this list of Mental and Behavioral Health resources, including crisis lines and contacts for ongoing support.
The Lyme Food Pantry is open on Tuesdays (or by appointment).
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 can pack a box while you wait. If Tuesday timing is a problem for you, give us a call. We can help.
Coming up in this next week:
As you are out and about, please be thoughtful about how to keep yourself and others safe and healthy. Wear a mask when you are in public. Continue to keep a safe distance. Stay home if you are sick at all. And please be kind, as you encourage others to practice safe behaviors. ❤️?.
