covid - 19 CARE

Give CARe 

Hospitality and social distancing seem like polar opposite practices, but in the midst of staying physically distant from those around you, we wanted to help you re-imagine hospitality in this time. This new type of hospitality is love extended. Warmth, friendship, and care that reaches out to others even when our in-person interaction is limited. Below are options to help you think through how to extend love to the individuals in your household, in your neighborhood, in our nation, and in our world.

Home

  • Write a note to each of your family members or create an "encouragement circle" where everyone goes around and says one encouraging thing about each member of the family
  • Ask your family members, roommates, or those close to you "What is one thing I can do to serve you this week?" or "How are you doing?" Be ready to listen and act.
  • Send a letter or video to a parent or grandparent
  • Resist the urge to eat dinner on the go or in front of a screen and have a conversation around the table or call a family member or friend you haven't talked with in a while. Consider asking questions like: 
    • A) How are you doing physically, mentally, emotionally, and/or spiritually right now?
    • B) What is something that brought you joy this week?
    • C) What's one of your favorite memories? Will you share the story with me?"

Neighborhood

  • Make "bored-bags" and deliver to neighbors with kids at home. You could include things like challenges, coloring pages, recipes and ingredients for homemade play-dough or slime, easy science experiments, games, note cards, etc.
  • Send a care package to someone. This can be a box you assemble, something ordered from an online store delivered to their home, a digital gift card, or something else. Be creative! Think about a possible theme - a game night, spa time, artistic expression, the sky is the limit!
  • Write notes of encouragement and leave them in neighbor's mailboxes. If you are able and looking for ways to help those who can't leave their home, print and fill out this card and deliver it to neighbors who may be in need.
