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.

Re: EF Corona Helpline

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.

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

I'm a totally bored housewife in Oberwil, Zug. Happy to help out too. I can cook/bake, clean, and I'm mean with power tools. Ikea furniture beware! Not too good with kids though, I tend to roar and bite whenever possible.

Re: EF Community Corona Helpline

Hi, I am living in Rheinfelden, and am currently doing home office for the next month at least. I would be happy to either temporarily foster a small dog (I live in an apartment without garden) or take for daily walks for any elderly who should not be outside or for anyone who is currently sick. I have my own dog, however he is in Hungary being looked after by my partner, and now with the borders shut, I cannot get him back. I love dogs and I am happy to help if needed.

Hi all,

I know that i should not be advertising here, but in the case of Coronavirus as I am a Carpenter in trade, still aloud to work at the moment by government rules, I would like to offer my services for those in need of desperate help.

Myself and a colleague could help move furniture for those that are selling to those that are buying, and we can take care of the move of furniture for you from doorstep to doorstep. From our side we need to keep the distance so we can keep helping, I am putting my work on hold as a carpenter. We need to have our costs covered, and would be willing to go at discounted rate do to financial issue's nation wide.

I hope I do not offend anyone with my post. But I do hope the admins here understand my post and can except this offer I am making for those in need of help be bound to their homes, here to help with essentials.

Best Erik

Re: Coronavirus, People in need of help when moving, or need pickups

To be fair, people still need carpentry work performed, particularly repairs. As it is more difficult at the moment to purchase parts and materials to carry out a repair on one's own, why not still offer this service?

Re: Coronavirus, People in need of help when moving, or need pickups

Hi,

Well I saw a few posts of people that are in urgent need of having a bed for example, but yes I can still do the carpentry and repairs. If someone requires. Thanks for the head up and thought.
