THIS FORM IS FOR THOSE LOOKING TO VOLUNTEER THEIR TIME, GOODS, SERVICES, OR FUNDS. FOR REQUESTING AID PLEASE REFER TO THIS DOC: https://forms.gle/HkEtuwxmtugYJfd69
WHO WE ARE: Garfield Neighbor Network is led by a group of neighbors & community organizers within the City of Garfield who are concerned about our community's well-being and looking to help those most vulnerable and affected by COVID-19 get the help they need.
WHAT WE’RE DOING: We are looking to create a network of neighbors who may be able to offer fellow community members assistance during this time of need. With this survey, we are looking to gauge our community's needs in order to scout out the community members who may be able to provide these goods or services. We are volunteer run, we are not funded, and our aid comes directly from the community.
WHO WE’RE PRIORITIZING: We are prioritizing those most vulnerable and affected by COVID-19 : the homeless, the sick, elderly, disabled, those quarantined without pay, and those limited in work.
HOW THIS WORKS: When a request for aid is made, we go into our network of community members who have volunteered to help and find a volunteer that meets the requesters' need. Once we match the person who made the request with the person/people who can provide support, we put you in touch in order for you to coordinate the details from there.
OUR AID LIMITATIONS: We are neighbors helping neighbors. The aid provided comes from community support and solidarity. We cannot guarantee to meet each request but we will try our best to do so. We are not funded and we are not a government or medical agency. We are simply people connecting our neighbors who need help with our neighbors who can help.

OUR MODEL: Thank you to the rad folks at the Philly Mutual Aid Network for making the request form this form was modeled after. We have tweaked their version to meet what we think our needs are, and will continue changing as we learn and grow. If you have questions or want to chat about our model, email Garfield Neighbor Network at GarfieldNeighborNetwork@gmail.com
