For seniors 60 and over concerned about leaving their homes during the COVID-19 outbreak to shop for groceries and/or pick up medication, Brianna Greenberg, Care Coordinator, Bergen County Department of Human Services/Division of Senior Services, reports that Umbrella is available to make sure that everyone is able to get the supplies they need during this difficult time.
Umbrella can take a high volume of requests and mobilize helpers to fulfill them quickly (while minimizing contact to support social distancing). They can place online orders for non-digital seniors or if wait times are too long, they can match them with a local volunteer who can grocery shop on their behalf. They are waiving the membership needed at this time.
To place an order, individuals 60 and over can either fill out the form here or call 973-200-4499 or 844 402-2480 Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
Umbrella is only taking a small processing fee of $6 per order to cover call center costs.
