HinghamLink is a volunteer service connecting people who want to help with people who need help during the COVID-19 crisis.
This service is available to seniors, as well as other residents, who would like to hear a friendly voice on the other end of the phone line when they’re feeling isolated, can't get out to pick up groceries, or who just need assistance in getting through the day. A trash removal service is provided for Hingham seniors.
Volunteers wanting to make calls or to lend a helping hand, as well as those looking for assistance or an encouraging phone call, can sign up on the HinghamLink website. It's quick and easy to do!
The website is also home to the Face Mask Task Force and the colllaborative Hingham Food Project, which was created to ensure that no Hingham resident who is struggling during this challenging time goes hungry.
All services are free, and more volunteers are welcome. Those requesting a call or services will be matched with a volunteer.
For more information, to sign up as a volunteer, or to receive a phone call or to request assistance, visit hinghamlink.com.
