A Note From Glenn Novack, Owner of Moving Miss Daisy:

 

"Now that we are all shifting our lives into what we are calling our "new normal" I wanted to share some pictures form our activities during the early months of covid-19. We have moved forward stronger than ever and now have successfully launched our own consignment store!

 

We know our senior community well and on March 16th 2020, as things were just starting to shut down, we took immediate action and began our free grocery shopping and pharmacy pick-ups to those in need. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We had heard of another project connected to the FoodBank called, Cares4Paws. With C4P we are taking on weekly delivery routes in the Santa Maria area delivering cat food, litter and dog food to seniors in need for free so that they can keep their pets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To fill in the time in-between our shopping efforts we are volunteering with the Santa Barbara FoodBank boxing up and delivering groceries to low-income seniors.

 

The Santa Barbara FoodBank told us of another project, which they had to suspend for the moment called Backyard Bounty. We have picked up this service for them for the time being and they are routing calls to us now.

 

Backyard Bounty calls on community volunteers to go to peoples homes and pick citrus, avocados and other vegetables these homeowners have an over abundance of and bring it back to the FoodBank to distribute to those in need.

 

We made "bootleg" soups in our own kitchens to help with the Buellton Senior Center and the Meals on Wheels Program in the Valley, which has now taken off with home cooks making over 400 quarts a week!

From Isabelle:

Within this capsule of fear, has arisen great beauty. The people trapped in these times hail and greet each other. This is new. And beautiful. Strangers and neighbors alike, inquire earnestly if one is doing all right; offering help, food, medicine, supplies, etc.

 

There is warmth on the streets. Warmth that automobiles cannot offer to each other.

The internet has “warmed”, too. Besides necessity, the new addition is its beacon of closeness, concern and well-wishes. Frequently! You might say, the internet has become kind...

...Time has slowed down. Time now, has an allotment for squeezing in happiness. Happiness happens, when movement pauses. Hurried movement, that is. Notice the essence of things. Notice a new blossom. Notice one’s cared-for-person needs consoling.

Ones Love’s hair has developed a curl. The sun has warmth, welcome. There is light and shadow. The mocking bird is still singing, though it be getting dusky.

 

A virtual feast going on.

And, perhaps best of all - the pause offers our planet “breathing“ room. To get on with clean, beautiful blue skies ; with generating greenness, helping clothe harmed patches.

 

With creating creature beings, at least as fast as get swallowed. And without the furious pace that streams off waste.

ALMOST ideal operation. Inside this unwanted bubble.

How get it out of ye bubble, and streaming live?

Isabelle

A lovely poem for the times from a dear lady who let us pick parsnips and tangelos from here backyard for the FoodBank...
