How do I help the vulnerable and impoverished in Philly?
Fill out this form to express interest in helping SEAMAAC with packing, delivering, and making calls during COVID-19 to service impoverished elderly immigrants. They are practicing social distancing, but yes there is some risk involved. They are especially needing help from people with cars, or the following language skills: Vietnamese, Laotian, Burmese - Chin, Burmese, Nepali, Mandarin, but otherwise we can still be helpful with packing boxes at a distance. More details will be emailed to you next week.
Sign up for for PAPCA's Buddy System, where you will be matched with a PCV evacuee in the Philly area to listen to them and be there for them as they abruptly adjust back to being stateside. These interactions will be virtual during their quarantine and until the COVID-19 virus has passed. This link is for PCV evacuees too!
