Attention Senior Citizens of Monmouth!

We understand that the COVID 19 pandemic has spread a lot of fear of being out in public, and we want all of you to know that we can get through this together! Being quarantined may be necessary for you! If you have needs and are scared to leave your home, local First Responders would like to offer their assistance.

From the hours of 2pm to 5pm daily, We are working with several businesses and other programs in our community.

First Responders can help run errands in case of an emergency to include;

– Medication pick up and delivery

– Toiletries

– Clean water

– Meal referrals

For any other need feel free to call, and if we cannot assist you we will refer you to someone who can.

Again this offer is for Senior citizens (Age 55+). Call 309-734-8383 (Monmouth Police Non Emergency Dispatch Center). You will then be referred to a first responder who will assist!
