GOLDEN HILL REHABILITATION PAVILION
Our very own Dee Dunning is a frontline healthcare worker and has the following requests:
If any families, groups or individuals would like to send cheerful cards to the residents of my nursing home, they would love to get mail! Because of the recent restrictions they have no visitors, no volunteers, no pet therapy or entertainers... My Rec Dept is encouraging anyone to send a card just to say "have a nice day!!"
Send them to:
Golden Hill Recreation Department.
2028 Bridgeport Ave. Milford CT. 06460

Please register below for drop off details. No contact is necessary. We will follow CDC instructions so no residents will be at risk of being infected. We anticipate our isolation to go on for months, so variety of activity resources is crucial.
SEWING FABRIC HOSPITAL MASKS
Sally Head is leading an at home mask making operation.
I can’t sew but by faith and perseverance I’m able to do something. Who is with me? I have tons of material, templates and instructions. Looking for more volunteers. I’ll drop off supplies to you.
Please register below for more information from Sally.
BRM is one of the few food pantry's still distributing food. They are bagging groceries and working a front lawn pick-up system to keep contact between people minimal but ensuring people get needed food items. If you would like to donate to BRM click HERE
Please be praying for Rich and Heidi as they continue to support pastors and churches 'from a distance'. Much of their planned ministry involved visiting and retreating with people, this obviously cannot happen currently. Many church teams are needing support more than ever now, please pray for wisdom as they explore online and phone options to continue their important ministry.

The Kenyan govt has closed all schools, this includes Grace Education Centre. Please pray for the students who are now at home in the village of Njathaini without many resources, including their daily meal from the school. Pray for their health and safety during this time.
