Eryn Richardson, CENTURY 21 Heritage Group Ltd., was at home wondering what he could do to help those in need during the COVID-19 pandemic, when he started Heritage Helpers. This volunteer network website is dedicated to connecting homebound locals with volunteers who can help with a variety of tasks: grocery shopping, delivering medication or providing useful resources.
With about 30 realtors volunteering in five local communities, many of the elderly or at-risk members are getting the help they needed after receiving the strict advice to stay home. Heidi Shiraz, CENTURY 21 Heritage Group Ltd., joined the network as soon as it was created, saying “It’s our job to connect with people. It’s rewarding to be a volunteer.”
Please join us in thanking Eryn Richardson, the CENTURY 21 Heritage Group Ltd. team and the Heritage Helpers volunteers for all their hardwork in supporting their community during these trying times.
“The biggest issue is that people don’t think they need help or they are timid to ask for help. Don’t be embarrassed. Everyone needs help.” – Eryn Richardson, CENTURY 21 Heritage Group Ltd.
