On the bright side: Who needs help? Who can help?

Coronavirus is scary but on the bright side people are coming together all across the world. ’When I was a child and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say, ‘˜Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping,” said Mr. Rogers. Many people in Pike County need help and so many of us in the community have the ability to help and want to help. If you have a specific need during this time of crisis, post it here. If you have the ability to meet a need, do likewise. You can also submit needs or abilities to serve by e-mail to news@pikecountygeorgia.com or call us at 770-567-3446. We’re all in this together!

¢ Dollar General stores are designating the first hour of business for senior citizens so they can shop with less exposure. ’¢ Local utility providers are not disconnecting residential power customers or charging late fees during the coronavirus crisis. ’

¢The PC school system has set up a feeding program for students dependent on its school breakfast and lunch programs in order to eat. (Check the free stories under the COVID-19 Monitor tab for more information on these efforts.)
