Frequently Asked Questions
What are the updates concerning the COVID-19 Response and the “Helping Seniors Grand Drawing” Event?
Just like you, we’re keeping up with news, watching what’s happening in our country/world and then, within the last few days, we’ve gone from our normal routine to stepping up to assist Seniors over the next period when social distancing is the most recommended way that we keep our Seniors safe.
Given the situation facing all of us, here’s what to expect from Helping Seniors as we move forward in this unprecedented time:
We have made the decision to postpone the Helping Seniors Car Raffle Grand Drawing event from its originally scheduled April 25th date. The landscape is changing daily, even hourly, and at this time it wouldn’t be prudent to forecast a new Grand Drawing date just yet but rest assured that our President Joe Steckler is working with American Muscle Car Museum Owner Mark Pieloch – and this is event is at the top of the reschedule date list as soon as we get approval from government officials that it is safe to do so.
Ticket sales remain open during this time – both online (www.HelpingSeniorsCarRaffle.
Meanwhile, on our service as a non-profit organization, dedicated to operating the County’s Senior Information Helpline (now entering its 10th year of service) and provided outbound information services to Seniors in Brevard through print, TV, and Radio, we continue our services, actually, at an accelerated pace.
Our Senior Information Helpline (321-473-7770) remains open during this time and we have implemented contingencies to ensure we are able to continue to provide support and information to Seniors and their families in our area.
In addition, our Radio and TV broadcasts continue as scheduled, as do our print and digital outbound information efforts and our team is organizing a Senior Information update service via Social Media that you will be hearing more about during this week.
We thank you for your continued trust and support of Helping Seniors of Brevard – one thing this health crisis has made abundantly clear is that we need to really look after our Seniors and ensure their protection and safety during this time. Thank you for your interest and support in Helping Seniors of Brevard.”
