Per West Hawai'i Today this a.m.:
A state-wide delivery service for kupuna 60 and older is in need of volunteers. Since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic, the Our Kupuna program has been connecting sponsors with kupuna who are in need of groceries, medication and other necessary supplies. With cases still on the rise, Our Kupuna is seeking volunteers in Ka‘u and Captain Cook.
Sponsors call their designated kupuna once a week to see if any deliveries are needed. Kupuna are responsible for reimbursing their sponsor for expenses incurred.
Since the program’s launch in March, about 400 kupuna have signed up for the free service. Those interested in volunteering can visit ourkupuna.com. Volunteers must pass a background screening beforehand.
