SPOKANE, Wash. — Spokane C.O.P.S. shops are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but that isn’t stopping volunteers from helping their community.

Volunteers are delivering food and medicine for local seniors who are homebound.

Some stores, like Fred Meyer, are allowing uniformed volunteers to pick up pre-paid prescriptions. It’s a simple step that allows those who may be vulnerable to avoid a risky situation.

“A lot more people are staying home, as they probably should during this time, and so, Spokane C.O.P.S. is happy to help out and get the food and medicines to the people who are home-bound with health issues, that are a great concern to them about being out in public,” said volunteer Victor Frazier.

People in need of assistance can call 509-625-3300 to request help from a volunteer.
