Northstar Neighbors exists to spread a message of hope and compassion by serving and loving our neighbors who are at higher risk of COVID-19. If you are a healthy younger adult with low risk factors for COVID-19, sign up today to be paired with a senior or high-risk member of your community who could use your help throughout this difficult time through remote companionship and conversation or delivery of food or prescriptions.

I am 60 or older or otherwise at High Risk

NorthStar Neighbors connects low-risk volunteers with seniors or other high-risk members of our community who need to maintain social distancing as a result of the COVID-19 Virus.

These volunteers live in your community and want to help you by getting groceries, picking up prescriptions and checking in via phone to talk.

We care deeply about you and want you to remain healthy. Sign up today to be matched with a neighbor for free!

Whether You Need Help or Want to Provide Help, Take These Precautions

We urge all of our participants to abide by the CDC safety guidelines, which you can find in detail here.

Here are some of our recommendations:

  • When dropping off supplies to your high-risk match, we recommend having no personal contact and dropping the supplies at the door.
  • If you’re sick, stay home.
  • Clean or sanitize your hands before, after and during handling your high-risk match’s supplies.
  • Clean and disinfect your regularly used surfaces often, including your car’s steering wheel, controls and light switches/door knobs.
  • Don’t touch your face. If you have to cough, cough into your elbow.

Your Privacy

We take the privacy of your personal information very seriously and we will only use the data that you provide to match you with someone who lives in your community. Once we have made a match you will receive an email or a phone call with contact information for your match. Should you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to send us an email at NorthStarNeighbor@gmail.com.

How can you help?

Once a match is made, you and your match will take complete ownership of the process. The idea behind NorthStar Neighbors is to connect vulnerable people to those who are at low risk for COVID-19 and are willing and able to help in this time of social distancing. Once you are matched, the two of you will decide how things proceed.

Some Recommended Ideas:

  • Call every day or two to check in
  • Make a homemade card
  • Offer to pick up groceries or prescriptions

The Legal Stuff

Please keep in mind that this initiative is being run entirely by volunteers. We do not run background checks or screen participants beyond a friendly phone call. We are trusting that the people of Minnesota will continue to be good, honest and kind to one another. By completing the sign up form to be matched you agree that you accept all risk and responsibility and further hold any facilitator associated with NorthStar Neighbor harmless.
