Open Hands United Christian Ministry: COVID-19 Response Protocol for Services: Updated 3/27/20

Amid the rising concerns, fears, and uncertainties related to the Covid-19 virus have prompted Open Hands UCM to continue our proactive stance on the safety and security of volunteers and guests.

Imagine adding food insecurity to the anxiety many are feeling now. Many
families in our community depend on Open Hands and they need us now more than ever. Our food distribution will continue to follow the regular Tuesday and Thursday schedule. However, we have modified our approach to a drive through method in order to minimize or eliminate contact between volunteers and guests. Guests will be asked to stay in their vehicle and no guest will be allowed into the building. We ask for your patience as the process evolves, as it may need to be tweaked a bit during implementation.

We now have a remote, “contact-less” process in place for our Financial Assistance, and we will be holding our first interviews April 8th. Please visit other pages on our site for additional details regarding this new process: Overall Process- Click here. Documentation requirements: Click here.

For question, concerns, or to sign up to volunteer, please call
Sue McGukin (770-757-9557).

Thank you for your continued prayers as we traverse the days ahead.
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God
what you need, and thank Him for all he has done. Then you will
experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His
peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”
(Phil 4:6-7)
