A local resident is offering her services to senior citizens of Dawson County and Lumpkin County who may need assistance while at home due to coronavirus precautions.

Kim Newsome said that she wants to help any seniors who may be stuck at home or wary of leaving the house while Georgia is still being cautious of COVID-19.

“If they need groceries like milk, eggs, bread or whatever I can go pick them up and deliver them and they can pay me back for them,” Newsome said. “There are going to be isolated seniors in the county, and I just want to help whoever I can.”

Newsome added that she is looking for other people to volunteer alongside her in providing assistance to seniors.

“If anyone has the ability to volunteer with me, I have a feeling I will need them,” Newsome said.

If you or someone you know is a senior citizen in need of assistance or if you would like to help volunteer with Kim to help local seniors, call Kim Newsome at (706) 864-1087.
