Residents adapt and help others:

Locals make mask holders
There are many people and groups making mask and shield holders for the general public as well as for medical workers during the COVID-19 crisis. Scripps Ranch residents Thuy Lam and HM Rashidian are among those making holders – some for nurses at Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla. These mask holders had #Hero imprinted on them.

‘Help a Hero’ bags
Riley O’Day and Syra Walia of Scripps Ranch Girl Scout Troop 3077 are collecting items for “Help a Hero” bags as part of their Silver Award Project. Scripps Ranch has heroes – such as sanitation workers, grocery workers, postal workers and delivery drivers – and these Scouts want to show their appreciation. They are asking residents and businesses to donate items such as bite-sized chocolate, granola bars, Chapstick, mints/gum or travel size lotion. Their goal is to gather enough items for 50 bags. Residents may also suggest a hero who should be recognized.

Those interested in helping may contact Kelly at or Simmi at Drop off location is 11471 Rose Garden Court. Phone (858) 229-8727.

Home workspace
Pastor Nick Davis of Redemption Church prepares to live stream a service from his home’s living room. He set up a home studio to deliver Sunday service each week since his congregation cannot currently gather to meet at the site of their services normally held at Ellen Browning Scripps Elementary School.

Lights of hope
Cynthia Collins and her family placed light bulbs to form a cross to give encouragement to those passing it at night.

“We love giving people hope when they drive by our cross … It’s lit during Christmas and Easter seasons. We are happy to have it on for those driving down Fairbrook,” she said.
