GEORGEANNE’S HELPING HANDS
Ted Silva, 508-965-6072
For the immediate future we are only bringing residents to medical appointments with a priority at getting to Covid vaccine appointments.
But as more volunteers get vaccinated, we will slowly be increasing our ability to help you get where you need to go.
At this point, we are only using volunteers who have been vaccinated and waited the required time period. Face masks will still be required at all times by everyone during these transports regardless of vaccination status.
If you need transportation to a medical appointment or vaccine site, please call as soon as possible: Ted Silva, 508-965-6072.
We encourage residents to shop “on-line” with home delivery of food through the supermarkets that offer thoseservices, such as Publix and Walmart. Some residents have been using “Care Ride” - 727-536-7453 or 727- 866-1193.
“PALM HILL CALLING”
The purpose of the project is to make sure that everyone has contact with someone at least once a day. Most people have friends or neighbors, and they routinely check on each other. The names of 40 people are on the list for a call from a Palm Hill volunteer.
Palm Hill Calling is available to anyone interested in having this service whether they are a shareholder or renter, full time or seasonal. To get on the call list call Ted Silva at 508-965-6072.
PRAYER TEAM. The Prayer Team in Palm Hill is Claudia Hartz, Maureen Livers and Bonnie Swanson. Please call Claudia at 315-368-8166 if you have any questions. All social distancing guidelines will be followed.
NOTE: There is no charge for any services from the Helping Hands volunteers, and monetary tips are not accepted. “If we can help you, or you can help Helping Hands, please call me at 508-965-6072,” said Ted Silva.

MESCO – SERVICES CLOSED
From Linda Simon, former MESCO president, 727-559-0164, 73 Royal Palm
The MESCO organization is closed. Please, if you have a key, do NOT go into the building under any circumstances. If you have any equipment signed out, keep it at your home.
Due to changes in the law, liability problems and records that were not kept in the past, the present board of MESCO had no choice but to resign and close the services.
Peggy Novara, 716-903-2844 and 727-581-6739
Call Largo Police at 727-587-6730 to report suspicious activity. Dial 911 for an emergency or a crime in progress.
It is very important to leave outdoor lights on at night, keep house and car doors locked at all times and always be alert. Bikes and golf carts should always be locked also.
Palm Hill is a very safe place to live because we have always been vigilant.
