Help for Vulnerable Community Residents

The Town of Lyme is continuing its preparations to help our most vulnerable citizens through the days ahead.

We have a list of our community’s most vulnerable residents which has long been maintained by our Social Services Director and the Emergency Management Department. We want to make sure, however, that no one who is isolated and vulnerable in our community is overlooked in the coming days.

If you know someone in Lyme who is isolated – or if you, yourself, are a vulnerable individual as a result of your age or other reason – please notify the Town Clerk at townclerk@townlyme.org.  If you do not have access to email, please call Town Hall at 860-434-7733.

As a reminder, the Town of Lyme has also issued a call for volunteers who are willing and able to help isolated individuals in our community.  Please email our Town Clerk at townclerk@townlyme.org if you are willing to help.  She will be compiling a list of resident volunteers. If you have other expertise you think may be valuable in serving others during the coming days, please mention that in your email.

Thank you for helping us look after one another.

Town of Lyme Issues Call for Volunteers

The coronavirus is the biggest public health challenge Lyme has faced in generations.  We want to make sure none of our vulnerable residents are facing this challenge alone. 

In preparation for anticipated needs in days ahead, the Town of Lyme is issuing a call for volunteers who are willing and able to help isolated individuals in our community.  We anticipate a need for volunteers who can pick up and deliver groceries, medications and other supplies; and volunteers who can offer ongoing emotional support by phone or email. In the future, there may be additional ways that you can help.

The volunteer coordination effort will be led by our Social Services Director and our Town Clerk, supported by our Emergency Management Department and Second Selectman.

Please email your name, address and phone number to our Town Clerk at townclerk@townlyme.org if you are willing to help.  She will be compiling a list of resident volunteers.  If you have other expertise you think may be valuable in serving others during the coming days, please mention that in your email.

Thank you for helping us look after one another.
