A PBO Invitation Regarding Coronavirus
Given the pandemic of Coronavirus and the national state of emergency, the Point Breeze Organization wants to reach out to establish a network of neighborhood help.
We know that certain people are more at risk for negative health consequences due to Coronavirus - particularly those above age 60, women within 2 weeks of giving birth, and those with health conditions like cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, respiratory problems, those immunocompromised, and others.
Our goal is to help these neighbors maintain their social distancing and stay away from crowds, which increase risk of infection. Possible services that people already may need include, but are not limited to:
Grocery shopping - help with delivery of groceries ordered online
Picking up medical prescriptions
Connecting you with pet care professionals
Checking in, by phone, on elderly, at-risk, or those without a live-in caretaker
If you are interested in joining this network

Thank you for your help and we look forward to hearing from you!
PBO INITIATES SIDEWALK CHALK ACTIVITY:
The Point Breeze Organization want to help during the Covid-19 pandemic. Many of you are working from home and your children are doing online learning at home also.We have noticed many sidewalk chalk drawings on our daily walks.
We would like to encourage you to produce more chalk sidewalk drawings! We can post pictures of these on our website and Facebook page.
If you need chalk we can also supply that. Just contact us at email@example.com and we will deliver the chalk to your porch.
Now is an important time for us to work together and what better way than decoration our neighborhood sidewalks!
