FiftyForward has suspended all volunteer service through April 30, 2020.
Volunteers are the backbone of many FiftyForward Centers and Programs, particularly FiftyForward Fresh/Meals on Wheels so this was a difficult decision that was not made lightly. The health and safety of our members, clients, staff and volunteers are paramount in all we do. With recent information from the CDC indicating that up to 25% of those infected with the Coronavirus are asymptomatic, a volunteer or staff member who is experiencing no symptoms could still pose a risk to a vulnerable senior. In response to that, we have limited even staff contact with those we serve to the minimum amount possible in order to meet needs, and we have temporarily suspended volunteer service. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to welcoming volunteers, members and program participants back as soon as safely possible.
