RE: Southold Town Community Response Outreach
The Town of Southold is working to make sure the needs of its residents are met during these unprecedented times.
“We are working in conjunction with officials and agencies from State and County government as well as with Community organizations to address the needs of our residents” said Denis Noncarrow, Government Liaison Officer for Town. If you have questions, are in need of services, or would like to volunteer or donate items, please contact Mr. Noncarrow at 631-765-5806 or email@example.com.
The Town is particularly focused on the needs of our seniors. Karen McLaughlin, the Town’s Director of Human Resources and Senior Center stated that “Southold Town Senior Services is providing home delivered meals for Town residents 60 years of age and older. We are delivering hot meals Monday through Friday to senior’s homes and providing frozen meals for the weekend.”
Ms. McLaughlin is encouraging seniors to remain at home and contact Senior Services if they need assistance at 631-298-4460 or KarenM@southoldtownny.gov. Those seniors needing help with shopping or medication pick up may call Denis Noncarrow, Government Liaison Officer at 631-765-5806.
“The Town of Southold has been especially hard hit by the COVID-19 virus, but we will get through this, together” said Deputy Supervisor Jill Doherty. “We are at our best when we come to together in times of crisis. Each of us can all do our part by checking in with our neighbors, especially the elderly, to make sure they are okay, by telephone, email and social media.”
On behalf of Supervisor Russell and the Town Board, Deputy Supervisor Doherty urges all residents to remain at home as much as possible and for those essential business that remain open, to continue to use best practices.
