Below is the description at the top of the TEMPLATE:

This form was created to connect people with each other for mutual support.While we are observing social distancing, social isolation, and quarantine measures, we can still help each other safely. This form can help us do that, by bringing together those who need help with those who can offer help, and by setting up a buddy system in which people look out for each other through regular check-ins.

Here’s how to request help, offer help, and generally buddy up:

If you are looking for help of any sort, please fill this form out. Your information will be entered in a spreadsheet that others in our community can access in order to contact you if they can help.

If you can offer help of any sort, please fill this form out. Your information will be entered in a spreadsheet that others in our community can access in order to contact you when they need the help you can offer.

If you don’t need specific help at this time but would like to connect with a buddy to form a connection with a neighbor, so you can look out for each other, please fill this form out. Your information will be entered in a spreadsheet that others in the community can access in order to contact you to set up a buddy system connection.

Perhaps one of the most important things we can do right now for each other is to stay connected. We encourage everyone to activate that Buddy System we’re taught as children, to adopt a neighbor as your buddy and check in with your buddy each day via a safe method such as phone, email, text, and video chat. 

 

Important: This form and the attached spreadsheets are offered as a community service, meant to increase the public good. Everyone using this form and spreadsheets participates at their own risk. It is each person’s responsibility to follow public health recommendations, general personal practices, and their own research and risk analysis in order to participate in this buddy system.
