Important Considerations for Distributing Flyers

We have PDFs of flyer in English and Spanish that you can print and distribute in your community. Visit the city-specific Facebook groups for customized flyers (e.g., "HelpPaso" flyers). For anyone distributing flyers or goods/supplies to a home, please be mindful of the following: (a) leave flyers/supplies at a residence and do NOT deliver face-to-face, (b) do NOT touch a doorknob or doorbell or any other surface if delivery to a residence, and (c) if you are sick at all or if anyone in your household is sick, ask another group member to distribute for you. Thank you for adhering to these critical guidelines.

How We're Helping

We are volunteers across the Central Coast who have teamed up through the HelpSLO Facebook group. We began as a SLO County group and have expanded to include parts of Santa Barbara County as well.  The purpose is to provide help to people who are most at risk in our communities.

This site is for helpers and those who need help. To make offers to help or to ask for support, you can make a post to the HelpSLO or other regional Facebook groups listed above.  Another way to reach out is by email (helpslocounty@gmail.com).
