National Guard Assistance at the Poverello Center

Beginning this afternoon, the National Guard will assist with staffing the Poverello Center for the next two weeks which will allow us to continue to provide critical services to the most vulnerable in our community. This assistance will allow the Poverello to meet our mission as several staff members who were identified as close contacts to those who tested positive for COVID continue to quarantine. National Guard members will be working alongside and at the direction of Poverello Center staff, assisting with COVID symptom screening, handing out sack lunches, assisting with our check-in procedures, and supporting cleaning activities in the building. We are grateful for this temporary assistance from the National Guard.
