Carver Market Needs
Dear Friends of the Carver Market,
Please know that our Market is addressing the dual priorities of ensuring the health and safety of our staff, clients, and volunteers, and continuing to serve an already vulnerable population of neighbors.
We continue to instruct our staff and volunteers NOT to come to the Market if they are showing signs of illness (coughing, sneezing, fever), have an underlying medical condition that makes them vulnerable to infection, or live with or have regular contact with anyone considered at risk from COVID-19. Similarly, we have asked clients to stay home if any of the above factors apply to them, recommending they send a friend or helper to pick up groceries on their behalf.
We have adapted Market operations to limit person-to-person contact. While we pride ourselves on being a “choice” Market and allowing clients to individually select their grocery items, we continue to provide our clients with pre-packaged bags of food. We hope to resume our “normal” market operations as soon as possible.
At the present time, we are accepting individual donations of food and personal items, such as diapers. Our Market is also stocked through the generosity and kindness of our supporters including discounted grocery programs, community gardens, individual donors, corporate donations, community food drives and various non-profit partners.
Email our Front Desk team at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to schedule.
We welcome financial donations to cover food purchases and, just as importantly, to offset our costs for staff to handle deliveries and distribution. The people power needed to move, unpack, set up and distribute and then recycle the boxes is enormous.
If you wish to help Carver Center, we ask that you consider making a donation through this link, https://carvercenter.org/donate/.
