Recreation and Community Services Steps Up, Adapts Services During COVID-19
UncategorizedTranslate Larger Text PrintShare

The Hawaiian Gardens Recreation and Community Services Department is stepping up to assist residents during the COVID-19 crisis, adjusting typical duties to provide essential services to our seniors and youth.

From March 16 to April 15, staff spoke with 171 customers on the department’s dedicated COVID-19 senior assistance line and addressed issues ranging from eviction information to senior food assistance. The Transportation Division provided rides to 55 senior residents. Staff distributed 118 food boxes with bread, rice and other non-perishable goods to our seniors and distributed or delivered 511 senior lunches.

In addition to their work with seniors, Recreation and Community Services staff distributed 100 flyers to local businesses about loan resources.

The department also hosted a supervised WiFi hotspot location at the C. Robert Lee tennis courts to support local students who may lack adequate WiFi access at home. City staff organized this study space with proper social distancing measures in place. This daytime program ran from March 31 to April 2 and again during ABCUSD’s spring break from April 13 to April 16.

City special events coordinator (and current nursing student) Candelario Montion went above and beyond his work in the City to help out our state. When Candelario heard about the launch of the California Health Corps, the program coordinating healthcare professionals and students across the state, he registered the same day. During emergencies, the Corps may ask members to temporarily relocate to high-need locations across the state. Candelario is currently getting his nursing degree from CSU Fullerton.

“Candelario and every other staff member in the Recreation and Community Service Department are stepping up to provide the essential services that will get our city through this difficult time,” said City Manager Ernie Hernandez. “With every meal delivery, transport and wellness check, Hawaiian Gardens is one step closer to emerging strong on the other side of this crisis.”
