The Ross County Foundation has launched the For Our People campaign to help the community deal with the effects of the coronavirus shutdown.
The Staggies’ community programme has received a £5,000 grant from Foundation Scotland’s community response, recovery and resilience fund, and will work with local community organisations to help provide services.
Along with regular delivery of meals to the most vulnerable in the local community, the foundation will also focus on maintaining regular contact with supporters in need of conversation.
Staggies co-managers Stuart Kettlewell and Steven Ferguson were among a number of players and staff who made phone calls to season ticket holders over the age of 65 last week, with the foundation keen to extend its telephone outreach in the coming weeks.
Coummunity manager Gordon Duff said: “We are delighted to receive the funding but now the work really begins.
“We are fully aware of the challenges facing people in our community at the moment and it is important that, as a pillar of the local community, we can help at this time.
“We have identified that meal supply and communication are two areas where we can really work with our community to help them and that is where we will focus our efforts.
“Our thanks go to Foundation Scotland for making the grant available.”
