Love Your Neighbor: How to Help

As a caring community, we strive to meet the growing needs of our NSCI family. During this time in particular, we are aware that these needs are constantly changing.

 

If you are able to lend a hand to someone in need (phone call check-ins, dog walking, etc.) please let us know HERE. As we become aware of needs in our community, a member of the NSCI staff or lay leader will be in touch with a specific task.

 

 

NEW! Love Your Neighbor PALS Program!

Brighten an NSCI senior's day!

What: You and your family will create a card or note to let a NSCI congregant living in a senior community know that they are being thought of.

How: Once you have registered, we will email you the first name and town of one of our community members. Please indicate the name & town of the recipient on the outer envelope.

It's Easy: When your card is done, you can mail it to us or drop it off in the designated box located inside the NSCI lobby (Mon. – Thurs., 9:00 am-2:00 pm). We will get the cards delivered and your well wishes will be on their way.
