Plainfield Mutual Support Network
Forms to fill out if you want to offer or request support -- or call 634-1030
The Plainfield Mutual Support Network (PMSN) has been organized as a response to the COVID-19 crisis, and is a collaboration of various groups, including the COA and Plainfield Cares, in coordination with town government. The network is run by resident volunteers.
- Coordinate between those who need assistance as a result of social distancing or other aspects of the crisis, and those who wish to lend a hand
- Meet community needs as we move though these months
- Provide information about support
NOTE: This is a network for nonemergency needs and assistance. If you are experiencing an emergency, please dial 911. If you have a safety concern that is not an emergency, please contact the Plainfield Police Department.
Available: Shopping, masks, prescription pick-up, companionship phone calls or visits at a distance, online tutoring for children, emergency (food and gas card) aid and meeting other needs as they arise, such as pet sitting or online/IT help by phone. Emergency aid --> look on the right.
