MARCH 19 UPDATE

Due to COVID-19, KleinLife has ceased its senior center operations, but our Home Delivered Meals program is still operating and continues to be an essential need for our homebound seniors.
Many of our daily participants who attended the congregant meal program are signing on for home delivery on top of our regular clients. We are in desperate need of delivery drivers.

Every Tuesday during the crisis, we are asking for volunteers to help us deliver two week’s worth of meals to over 600 senior clients. TUESDAY, APRIL 7, we need EXTRA HELP delivering Passover meals and an extra bag of Passover items. WE NEED YOU!

Your safety is just as important to us as our seniors. To reduce exposure:

  1. Volunteers will come on a specific time schedule (coordinated by phone, text or email), so we can avoid everyone coming at once
  2. Volunteers will call when they arrive at KleinLife: Northeast Philadelphia’s parking lot
  3. Staff will bring latex gloves, packed meals, and routes outside by our loading dock area where volunteers will have the ability to load meals into their cars with no contact.
  4. After delivery, emptied freezer bags will be dropped off at KleinLife and left on the loading dock.

To volunteer, please contact John Eskate at [email protected].

Note: If you are over 65, have any medical conditions, or have any symptoms, please don’t volunteer.

MARCH 16 UPDATE

Due to the Philadelphia government mandate, we are closing our building until further notice starting at 5:00pm today (Monday, March 16).

Our staff in our Home Delivered Meals and In-Home Support Program are continuing to work to make sure that isolated seniors are able to be homebound safely. You may contact them at 215-698-7300 x196 (Home Delivered Meals) or x180 (In-Home Support Program).

Our Northeast Philadelphia location is open for all rentals, for members to use our athletic facility, and for our Home Delivered Meals program.

Active Adult Life (seniors) Programs and before- and after-care (KidSpace) are canceled until at least Friday, March 27.
