Ball State Helps Fans with Errands During Outbreak

With the athletics calendar and other parts of society ground to a halt amid the coronavirus outbreak, Ball State athletics is stepping up to help fans during a time of need. 

With many people locked down and confined to their homes, some of the most vulnerable members of society don’t necessarily feel safe going out to do basic errands, like getting groceries or picking up medical prescriptions. But the Ball State athletics department has launched a pilot program called Cardinal Couriers, offering athletic department staff to help aid the community in a time of need.

According to a release, Cardinal Couriers invites fans who need legitimate assistance with an errand to submit a request. Those requests are then reviewed and responded to by the athletics department, and a volunteer is deployed to fulfill the request. 

Volunteers are instructed to follow safety protocols, such as adhering to social distancing policies, wearing gloves during exchanges, and regular handwashing/sanitizing. 

The service is intended only for use by at-risk populations.
