ASAP First Week Great Success

ASAP_1x1

Southampton Town ASAP, the All Seniors Assistance Program, a delivery service for seniors living in the Town had a successful rollout this week.  Deliveries are being made each day, Monday through Friday,  between noon and 4 pm. 

More than 400 seniors are registered for the program and there are more than two dozen merchants enrolled in the door to door service.  Merchants are invited to register by going to the Town website and completing the Business Participant form or call 631-702-1777.

Seniors can register for the program through the town’s website http://www.southamptontownny.gov/asap or by calling 631-702-1777 from 10:00-4:00pm, Monday through Friday.

Here’s how the program works:

  • The senior first registers for the ASAP Program using the  information above,
  • The senior places an order with a participating merchant ( a list is available on the Town website) and uses their assigned 5 digit ID number for the All Seniors Assistance Program
  • The senior pays the merchant for the order by credit card. 

When the order is ready for pick up, the merchant calls ASAP and a Town employee delivers the items to the senior’s door step, using protective gear.

Ordered items go directly from the store to the resident.

“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. Also, I want to thank the Town staff that has helped launch this program in just three days and those who are volunteering their time to make these deliveries. I am very proud of their commitment to our community.”

The Town has also provided a list on its website of all local businesses that offer their own delivery services and/or provide takeout orders.  The list can be found on the Town main page at www.southamptontownny.gov
