"How Can I Help?"
These are unfamiliar times. We're accustmed to do our daily routines, receive our daily blessings. We are used to having answers. So what do we do? The longer I serve the people of Claridon, the more I see the kind of high quality people that make up our community.
Our community is made up of caring, hardworking, faithful, loyal and common sense people. We have a community full of them! Many are asking, :"How can I help?". Some local orginizations are working on stratigies to safely and healthely help folks during the 'Stay at Home' order. Once they do, I'll share them here on our website so you can review different ways you can help. For now, here's what we have;
