COVID-19 Response

Our Response To COVID-19

Englewood Helping Hand. Inc. is closely monitoring developments surrounding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in our community. We are in regular communication with our partners at All Faith Food Banks in Sarasota. The safety of our staff, volunteers and clients are very important to us. We have taken extra steps to sanitize our facility. Effective on Monday, March 16, we will be implementing a drive through only policy. This policy will remain in effect until such time as we feel the Coronavirus is no longer a threat to our facility, staff, volunteers and clients. This drive through policy will mean that clients will not be allowed to enter the pantry. Food, such as fresh produce, frozen and canned goods will be delivered to the parking lot and placed at or near your mode of transportation. Staff will be on hand to direct traffic as well. Staff will be using personal protection such as gloves and using sanitizer at all times. If you are feeling ill, but still need to receive food, please allow someone else to retrieve the food for you. This is for your protection as well as the staff and volunteers.   We appreciate everyone’s efforts in helping to keep our community safe. We will share any updates or further communication with you as soon as we are made aware. Thank you for your support!
