Talking to Organizations About HinghamLink
Background on the HinghamLink Group and Website
Recently, several Hingham residents launched the HinghamLink website and Facebook group, connecting members of the community with friendly phone calls and other tangible help during the Coronavirus scare, while keeping the need for social distancing in mind.
This is a volunteer service linking Hingham residents who’d like to make calls with others who would like to receive them while isolated from their usual visitors – and connecting residents who need other types of assistance with those who are happy to offer it.
The service is available to seniors and other Hingham residents, who want to connect with another person when they’re feeling alone, can't get out to pick up groceries, or who aren't sure who to call about a particular issue that's troubling them.
Volunteers wanting to make calls or lend a helping hand, as well as those looking for assistance or an encouraging phone call, can sign up on the HinghamLink website.
All services are free, and more volunteers are welcome. Those requesting a call or services will be matched with a volunteer.
For more information, to sign up as a volunteer, or to receive a phone call or other assistance, visit HinghamLink.com, or call (781) 908-0590.
