EF Community Corona Helpline
 
Seeing that we're a community, we ought to stick together and make use of our combined resources. I would like this thread to be a sort of classifieds, where we can post what we need or what we can offer. I do trust that everybody will use common sense and not abuse the system.

I start by stating that I live on the Zurich Goldcoast and I can offer people a ride in case of an emergency or are in need of heavy lifting. I can also take care of pets, should anybody not be able to walk/feed your pet.



Here is a brief summary of who is located where and was kind enough to offer their help/resources should somebody require them. The summary was provided to you by Ata, who was kind enough to PM me the list. I will update it accordingly.

Good idea lost_inbroad! Thanks.

For those who might not [yet] know the regional terms, such as your "Goldcoast", could posters here please also specify the names some of the towns/parts of the cities in the area in which they're ready to help? Thank you.

You're right. Ok, I live where all rich folks are. I'm however as broke as a joke. They keep me around for social studies, sort of like the movie Trading Places. Jokes aside, I live in the district of Meilen. :)

Come on folks, I can't be the only one with available resources.

Re: EF Community Corona Helpline
 
I live in Thalwil (so other side of the lake Zurich). I have a car and can help with shopping.
Due to my parents being in the risk group I can't babysit.
But let me know if there is anything I can help you with. I am Swiss and speak fluent Swiss German.

Re: EF Community Corona Helpline

obviously i'm not physically able to help out there myself but I do have family in Thurgau (specifically aadorf) and good contacts in Grindelwald if anyone is stuck there who needs assistance ( thinking more of elderly /self quarantine individuals)
also if anyone is in Cham of need. anyone can PM me for assistance

I‘m afraid that I still need to work, which means driving to Lucerne daily until the company finally agrees on home office.. but as I‘m stuck here happy to help during the weekends? Have a car, fluent in German

Zurich


Edit: Wallisellen to be precise so that could include Dübendorf, Dietlikon etc as well

heckenhocker 16.03.2020 08:34

Re: EF Community Corona Helpline
 
I'm in Bern, near Westside. Have a car and speak fluent German. Not in any risk groups and no family members in Switzerland that need protection.....so happy to help where I can.

Mikers 16.03.2020 08:41

Re: EF Community Corona Helpline
 
I am in Vaud near Vevey. We have the whole family at home and I do have mild asthma but not sure it puts me in high-risk as its not severe. Have a car etc if someone needs shopping etc.

Th3Alchemist 16.03.2020 08:49

Re: EF Community Corona Helpline
 
I live in Steinhausen Zug. I could help with shopping, specially for the elderly. But I don't know how I could do that without being a risk for them :(

Ato 16.03.2020 08:53

Re: EF Community Corona Helpline
 
In Dübendorf (north east of Zürich city) with a car, can carry large bags of shopping unaided up stairs as tested this weekend for a friend.

Still working but I can give a hand in the evenings.

Also, not sure about helping the elderly directly, happy to drop things to a door.

bokabil 16.03.2020 10:00

Re: EF Community Corona Helpline
 
From Uster ZH with a car and 2 teenage kids, together we can carry pretty much anything up/down stairs. Not in any risk-group and no relatives here in Switzerland.

How are the local hospitals in your area? Maybe worth checking if they are looking for volunteers.

Belgianmum 16.03.2020 10:07

Re: EF Community Corona Helpline
 
I’m in Neuchâtel near the Bern cantonal border and also happy to help with shopping etc for people who need it.
Have a strong, fit 20 year old at home who has a car available so can do any heavy lifting etc if needed. He doesn’t start online courses from uni until next Monday.

Re: EF Community Corona Helpline
 
I'm in Baden, and have a big ol' station wagon available for grocery / pharmacy runs or anything else. Also, if you need a ride somewhere, or if you would like your pet walked / fed / etc. Really if you need something and you are in or around Baden, just let me know and we'll figure it out.

Consider it done. They do have senior cards for a select few shopping centers.

Re: EF Community Corona Helpline
 
I live in Greifensee and can help someone who is elderly or sick if they need something from the Migros here or the Apotheke. I can leave it by your door or in your post box so we don't need to interact. Send me a PM if you need something. Stay safe out there. x.
