Southampton Town’s ASAP, the All Seniors Assistance Program, will begin delivery service on March 25, 2020 for all seniors living in the Town of Southampton.
The Town of Southampton has launched the ASAP program to help seniors, 60 years or older, order many items from participating local businesses without having to venture out. Seniors can register for the program through the town’s website http://www.southamptontownny.gov/asap or by calling 631-702-1777 from 8:30-4:00pm, Monday through Friday.
Here’s how the program works:
- Register for the program through the Town Website or by calling 631 702 1777
- Review the list of participating businesses on the town website. http://www.southamptontownny.gov/BusinessDirectory.
- Place your an order with a participating merchant using your assigned 5 – digit ID number for the ASAP program
- The senior pays the merchant for the order by credit card.
When the order is prepared for delivery, the merchant calls ASAP and a Town employee delivers the items to the senior’s door step, using protective gloves and mask.
Deliveries will be made each weekday between 12 and 4 pm.
“COVID 19 is particularly dangerous to senior citizens,” said Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman. “The new service will help seniors stay at home and will help our local businesses stay viable through this public health emergency.”
