Flowers- How to Help a Friend in Need

You may know someone (a friend, family member, or maybe a neighbor) who has experienced a crisis: health problems, surgery, death of a family member, car accident, house fire, etc.

But many of us may be unsure of the best way to help, even though we really truly want to help. Knowing the right thing to say or do can be very tricky, depending on the particular situation and your personal relationship with the person.

“Let me know what I can do for you…”

While said with the BEST of intentions, this rather vague statement leaves the onus on your friend to ask for help. I know that I have a really hard time asking for help, so I try to be mindful of this, and ask specific questions like “Can I bring you ______ this weekend?”

Having been involved in organizing help for many friends and community members, here are some of the best things I’ve found to be helpful in times of need…

Offer to Help with Child Care

Can I take your kids to school or pick them up this week? Can I take them for the night? For the weekend? For a playdate?

The FIRST thing I’m concerned about when everything is falling apart is my children being taken care of. Offering to help with arranging child care could be a huge weight off their shoulders. Also, if this is a family emergency of sorts, it’s usually a good idea to maintain some level of normalcy and routine for children. Keeping up with school and extra-curricular activities is important.

Bring A Meal or Set Up a Meal Train

Low Carb Freezer meals Hip2Save.comAs moms, we know how incredibly helpful it can be to not have to worry about dinner. You can drop off a hot meal (homemade or take-out), drop off freezer meals that are easily prepared, or even just order pizza to be delivered (this is a great option if your friend lives far away.) You can find a variety of easy meals and desserts HERE, and restaurant deals this way!

Meal TrainSetting up a Meal Train is super easy, and it’s FREE! Meal Train is a great way to organize meals for as many dates as needed, and you can easily share on social media through their website, making it easier to find volunteers to sign up and drop off meals. One of the BEST things about Meal Train is that you can enter your friend’s food likes, dislikes, allergies, and the best time to drop off a meal.

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe Hip2SaveTip: While free food will ALWAYS be appreciated, make a note of what other volunteers have signed up to bring – no one wants to eat spaghetti for 2 weeks straight. 😉

A few months ago I had a hysterectomy, and I had several friends reach out to me and ask if I needed anything. Looking and feeling like death, I had zero interest in seeing anyone.

One evening a friend of mine sent me a text that simply said, “Knock, knock.” When I went to my door, she had left dinner on my doorstep. Tears poured down my cheeks because she totally understood how much I didn’t want to deal with seeing people and trying to make polite small-talk, but that I really did want some dinner that I didn’t have to cook!

Small things like that really do make the biggest difference! Consider dropping off a bottle of wine or a special treat to help them feel better.

Tip: Leave a cooler outside their door for meals to be left in. That way they don’t need to see anyone, and the meal is protected from weather, pets, etc.

Grocery Shop for Your Friend

groceriesConsider doing some grocery shopping for your friend. Again, if you’re not local, a great option is to send them a paid subscription for a service that delivers groceries and other household items. Some great options include Amazon.com and Jet.com.

Help With Housework or Running Errands

Depending on the situation, this can be extremely important. Even just making phone calls can be a big help for someone who is very overwhelmed, or perhaps stuck at a hospital or something. Offering directly to complete a to-do list might be just what your friend needs.


Look for laundry services in your area, as well. That’s a chore that piles up quickly and becomes really stressful when you’re unable to complete it. This service is invaluable when you need to be focused on something else, or simply are not capable of doing it.

Each situation will have different needs and priorities, but you should only offer to help if you truly can! 

Important tip: Don’t force your friend to accept your help, and don’t assume that you know what they need. They might be genuinely covered, and simply don’t need any more cooks in the kitchen, if you know what I mean. Offering is still polite, and means a lot, but know when to wish them well and step back.

Listen Intently

If all they need is a listening ear and a shoulder to cry on, do your best to be fully present and available for that. It’s also important that you don’t share the details of the situation with anyone else without permission. If they trust you enough to share this with you, don’t destroy that trust.

 Organize a Fundraiser

If your friend needs financial assistance, a good way to help is to organize a fundraiser. While GoFundMe can be a very useful resource for crowdfunding, it’s not always the most effective because of the sheer number of GoFundMe campaigns. Some other ideas include holding a large-scale yard sale, bake sale or dinner party, silent auction, or a car wash.


Another good idea is to find a volunteer photographer to offer family pictures, as the costs are essentially zero, so the price paid can go toward your cause.

If you’re looking to host a silent auction, make a list of connections you have to potential donors for items to be auctioned, as well as to attend the auction and bid on the items. Make a list of all the different social groups you’re part of, both online and off: mom groups, church groups, coworkers, classmates, etc.

Continue the Support…

If the situation is ongoing, continue to offer help and support for as long as needed. Oftentimes, a lot of support will come pouring in in the beginning, even to the point of being too much, and then it dwindles as people move on and get busy with their own lives again.

Calling friend

Try to carve out time to keep checking in, as it fits your schedule and financial availability. A quick text, even if it goes unanswered, still lets them know that you’re thinking about them, and that you’re available. I know that I’m horrible at replying to texts sometimes, so don’t take it personal if they don’t. If nothing else, calling and checking in costs nothing and lets them know you care.

    Great ideas! Don’t forget about yard work or helping with the family pets.Thanks to my wonderful sister, family, friends and neighbors for helping us get thru our very difficult 5 months after my husband was hit by a car while riding his bicycle. A generous visa gift from co workers and friends was a huge help during 8 weeks of hospital and rehab stay for gas and food. Never had to worry about his transportation to and from outpatient rehab when I had to return work after 12 weeks of FMLA. Believe me, my friends and family took so much stress off of me during this time and it meant so much!!!!

    • Denisec

      Be sure and let your friend in need understand that they don’t have to reply to a text. I totally stressed out on trying to reply to text and update our family, friends, and numerous co workers. I couldn’t keep track of who I had updated and who I had not. Couldn’t have a phone conversation w/o another call beeping in. I decided that my husband came first and I had to stop trying to communicate with everyone. When he was resting, I had to rest! Set up a couple of people to communicate with and then they communicate with everyone else!

  6. Lolie

    Thank you for the tips! Such great ideas!

    • Danielle (Hip2Save Sidekick)

  7. Anne

    Thank you for this post. My husband died 6 weeks ago. He was dearly loved by many, who knew him as a giving humble servant. And many people care deeply for me. My biggest advice is, please, please, please do not say, “Call me if you need anything.” It is well intentioned, but it puts the job back on my shoulders. (I have to call them. I have to know what they are capable of doing. I don’t even know what I need.)
    So, it works better to think of what that “missing” person does/did & offer to do it. Or give the grieving/ in-crisis person a choice between 2 things: Mow the lawn, be Mr. Fix-it, do the carpool, take the kids to their practices, freeze a meal, etc. Taking “ownership” and organizing the meal train, carpool, practices is even better!

    • riss

      I’m so sorry for your loss.

      • Patty

        So sorry for your loss.
        Thanks for sharing the things that helped you

    • Denisec

      Bless your heart! So sorry for your loss! Hugs!

    • Sandy

      So sorry to hear that. Glad to hear that you have people to help. Take good care.

    • Heather

      So sorry for your loss. *hugs*

    • Jean

      So sorry for loss. Another thing to remember is that a lot of help, food, support comes within the first weeks. Don’t forget to show support 6 months down the road. That is when you need the help, friendship because it feels like people forget you are still there grieving

      • Princess

        I’m so sorry for your loss Anne. Jean that is so true. I’ve had my fair share of losing close loved ones, and it seems that after the funeral is over everyone goes back to life as usual. There’s no time frame on grieving and we have to remember to check in and follow up on the person/persons even months down the road.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      So sorry for your loss. โค๏ธ And thank you so much for taking the time comment. We sure appreciate it.

    • Krysta

      Glad you have people for support. We lost my dad when I was 16 and I’ve seen how hard it’s been for my mother these last 13 years on her own. Definitely good advice for those offering help to be specific and not put it back on the grieving to reach out. I hope you can find peace in life and you obtain whatever help and guidance available to you.

    • Laura

      Sorry for your loss. I will put you in my prayers. My mom died kind of suddenly last year. She was 53. I had tons of people say “let me know if you need anything”, but it felt like an empty promise, because I would never have asked. The most helpful thing was when a friend showed up with meals from several church families. They even thought to bring fresh fruit and disposable plates/bowls and utensils so I didn’t have even need to wash ๐Ÿ™‚
      Now I just wish some of these people would be willing to watch my kids once in a while…my mom was my babysitter.

  8. Ap

    When there is a death, we always take over household items that they may need with having a lot of visitors. These items consist of things like toilet paper, paper towels, plastic plates, plastic silverware, and plastic cups. There is usually an abundance of food offered, but not these items. When my father passed, we kept running out of these basic items and constantly washing dishes to keep up with the visitors. That always stuck in my head for some reason and that’s where we came up with the idea of taking these items instead of offering food.

    • KS

      What a great idea for paper products!

      I also appreciated meals that came in disposable trays. Trying to wash glass dishes and return them unbroken to the correct owner was not helpful!

      I’m going to assume most people have heard of the website caringbridge.com…. But if you haven’t and you’re having a medical need, this website is like a blog people can use to check on you. You only have to make updates there and not try to remember who you told what to.

    • Denisec

      Ap. Great idea! I took these items over when a elderly friend lost her husband. Now they have did the same for their friends because they said it was a wonderful idea and helped them from having to run to the store for these items. Don’t forget the boxes of kleenex.

      • Patty

        Awesome idea!!

      • Patty

        I wonder if this would be good for a friend who has health issues and her husband and daughter were both hurt in a car accident.
        I’m thinking paper plates and napkins might be helpful right now

        • Princess

          Patty I think it would be a great idea. Paper plates, plastic cutlery, plastic cups, and napkins could be thrown away after use and that eliminates the stress of having to do as many dishes. You can actually get the smart sense brand from Kmart (if you have one close by) and earn 100% points back (maximum $50) to use on other things.

      Awe, thanks! <3

  12. KS

    Lovely post!! Great ideas. Another choice for coordinating meals is takethemameal.com. This website doesn’t require people to make an account. (It has a related site for potlucks called perfectpotluck.com that I’ve used for potluck meals as well as “potluck” craft play dates.)

    Thanks for the encouragement and ideas to help others!

    • Kathy

      One of the best meal ideas came when someone brought breakfast foods for my kids. Everyone thinks of dinner, but there are other meals too. One time it was muffins and oj. Another time it was toaster pancakes, mini hot dogs in crescent rolls, already washed and cut fruit and muffins. Loved this!! Especially the washed and cut fruit.

    • Ash

      I also LOVE and highly recommend takethemameal.com and perfectpotluck.com!!!!

  13. Angela

    I recently had my 3rd baby and one of my co-workers/friends used a place, which picks up food from a restaurant and delivers it. Was a nice surprise and like Danielle said, if the person receiving the food doesn’t necessarily feel like visiting, it’s a great option. The place she used was Grubhub.

    • KS

      And if you send for delivery, make sure you tip! Someone ordered delivery for us. We had no idea it was coming (another meal was actually on the table) and then we had to scramble for tip when the driver asked for it!

  14. Raedev

    This is an amazing site. And there’s so many people out there who need a helping hand. I know people get busy sometimes but if I really listen to the person’s likes, wants, etc then maybe the small gestures will be enough for even a busy mom like me to brighten someone’s day..๐Ÿ’œ

  15. lydia

    I was hospitalized and in very grave condition for almost 3 months after the birth of my child several years ago. I have very little memory (and wasn’t really concious) of what went on during that time. My husband was back and forth between the hospital to see me and our home to be with our newborn. My mother moved in to our home during that time to care for the baby full time.
    She still talks about those people who stopped by unannounced to drop off a meal or just sit with her.
    People going through tough times have a hard time picking up the phone to ask for help, but will be infinitely grateful for your help. Save them a trip to the grocery store, bring a box of diapers or wipes if they have small children at home, or set up a mass/church service to pray for them. It all helps.

  16. Susan

    A co-worker found herself suddenly separated from her husband and living on her own with kids for the first time in her life (in her 40s). I have her a laundry basket full of towels, a blanket, cleaning supplies, and odds and end like scissors and nail clippers. Also, some books by a humor columnist. She loved it and for a week would tell me stories about needing random things and finding them in the basket.

  17. Mama Dill

    We lost our home to a fire almost 4 weeks ago and have been blessed with a lot of generosity. That said some of the most helpful was gift cards (we didnt see an insurance payment until a few days ago and needed to buy everyday items and eat out as we had nowhere to cook) and people saying what they will help with vs saying let them know if we need anything. I also agree with the post child care is so helpful. We have 3 boys that needed to be watched and were trying to have meetings with insurance people etc with them in tow.
    What a wonderful post this is!

    • Mama Dill

      Ps. Hip2save has been super helpful as we purchase everything for our rental home and ourselves again ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Lynne

    After I had my second baby my mother in law texted don’t plan supper tonight…I’ve got take-out coming your way. She brought us Olive Garden which tasted like heaven after eating pizza and sandwiches for a week!
    With my 3rd child she stopped by one afternoon and told me I’ll watch the kids for a few hours. You go shower, take a nap, watch tv…..just worry about you.

  19. Emily

    Great post! When my grandfather died, we had a lot of people drop off food and household supplies. One person brought a meal that was just for the freezer with instructions on how to cook it. It was great to pull that our during the first weeks back to work, etc.

    Something else that we do, when we know people are getting sick with a late-stage illness, we save coupons for products we think their family may need- like Ensure. Those products are expensive and every few dollars you can save really help. When my grandfather was sick, he went through a six pack every two or three days. They were $5-7 a pack and having friends save those coupons for us made a big difference when we could also match with a sale. We could stock up. We also had friends that knew were needed it and would tell us when there were sales. It was very kind, even if we couldn’t make it to the store that particular week.

  20. Brianna

    When my brother died unexpectedly we had tons of food brought to us, but I could only eat cold cuts and casseroles for so long. Like a reader mentioned above breakfast is nice! I would have been happy with just a box of cereal and some milk because the basics run out quickly. The best help we received was from a friend to “help write thank you cards.” My parents didn’t have to go through that pain, but could acknowledge the generosity of others, and she wrote beautiful and non-generic cards. People also put address labels on those dishes and when it came time to return them we had someone else offer to drive all over the country to return them and it saved us the conversation and questions and time.

  21. ish

    Right now I am in desperate need of a home for myself and my 2 boys 10 & 7. Im pretty much homeless. Ive been staying at my boyfriends who is abusive and I want out. I just dont have anywhere to go. I am in California.

    • Julia L.

      I am so sorry for the difficult times and am happy that you want out of a bad situation for your kids. Have you checked your County website? I am also in CA and that is typically where you can find emergency services (like a family shelter, food pantry, hot meals etc). My prayers and thoughts are with you and your children. ๐Ÿ’•

    • Kristie

      Call 311 if you have that service, they will tell you where all the safe places are. Good luck and stay strong.

    • LindaS

      Ish I’m so sorry to hear about your situation. I’m in SoCal where we have Sheepfold, a shelter for abused women and children. Maybe there is a shelter like this in your area? As Julia said, you and your boys will be in my prayers.

    • A

      United way can help you find local resources. Try calling 211 and tell them the situation. They’ll know what places and programs are near you.

    • Stephanie

      There is most likely a family services place in your area. They can help you with all sorts of things (food, court advocacy, clothes, housing, etc)

  22. Jenn

    Such a great post! I lost my Mom suddenly last year and I was just exhausted and overwhelmed trying to be help my Dad and plan her funeral. I learned just as many of you said – sometimes it’s the essentials like Milk, bread, eggs that I just didn’t have the energy to run to store. (Think perishables) Easy food, snacks for kids. Gift cards for local food delivery places were amazing once the dust settled and everyone left. Having to not have to plan dinner was such a gift! We had several meals dropped off all at once but no one here really wanted to eat. I was stressing to find ways to not waste the food. We were so grateful for everything anyone did even one friend that showed up at 10pm the night before the funeral to help me finish the memory board. Just be there & show up.

  23. Kristi

    When my step-dad died several people included a book of stamps in condolence cards. Never thought about the expense of mailing all the thank you notes, but thought this was a great idea.

  24. Shannon

    Helping is great of course but well meaning friends can sometimes be too helpful. I had one friend who was constantly asking me to let her do things for me after my 3rd was born but what I really needed was just some alone time with my family. But I didn’t want to be rude to her.

  25. Mel

    Great post! Several people brought frozen dinners over after I had my first child and babysat my first after I had my second child. Both of those things meant so much to us. Also, my sister knew I was couponing at the time so she gave me an envelope with diaper/wipe coupons and some “babysitting coupons” that she made…said unlimited uses and no expiration ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Mourrene

    So many great ideas! When my mom was sick and in the hospital for three months before she passed, I visited her everyday but two. My uncles gave me money for gas and daily parking fees, people brought me food, and family and friends transported me around to the funeral home, etc so that I wouldn’t be alone. One of the best gifts someone gave was a gift card to a restaurant and a big box of plastic forks and paper plates!!! After a loss, simple things are hard and it was great not having to worry about dishes.

    Now, when a friend or relative loses someone, I always reach and express condolences and offer help but tell them not to respond. I try to think of practical ways to help but I’m am going to definitely adopt some of these ideas. Thank you so much, Collin, for allowing the post.

  27. Elizabeth

    I love this post! It is a nice reminder of what we can do to help a friend, family member or neighbor in time of need. A new app I like is Shipt, you can order groceries from a local store and have them delivered and even set a specific hour to have them delivered. You pay everything even the tip in the app. It’s simply and really helps for new moms, grieving family members or in a case of illness/sickness. You can even use Swift Shopper app for the person to make their own grocery list and share it with you (and others). Thank you for all you do Hip2save!

  28. Pleasant

    We are going through my husband’s stage 4 cancer diagnosis and treatment right now, and we have 5 kids at home. I for sure have the hardest time with the “call if you need anything” messages. I’d love to share what would bless me so much right now. (We’ve been at this 9 months, and he’s still in an aggressive chemo treatment l, so this is all real for me):

    Ask for a list of favorite family recipes and make them for the family. So many times we have gotten a meal and it was just something that no one would eat.

    If you’re going to the zoo, park, etc, call and offer to take a kid along. My kids are
    Troopers, but I know they miss the fun moments, and we’ve had few of those this year.

    At back to school time, offer to pick up and shop for the supplies for the kids. That was so stressful for me buy it all admist all the traveling we are doing to Md Anderson.

    Drop off snacks and breakfast items just to be nice. It’s so special to have a homemade treat or donuts show up!

    Don’t tell them a natural remedy, please. Double please.

    If it’s in your financial means, arrange lawncare work and even cleaning help. I can’t imagine having had some of this help.

    And if like me, they have no family in the state, by all means help with the kids. They’ll need it. Trust me.

    And, don’t stop helping just because a month has gone by. We are 9 months into this and we still have so far to go. I’m sure others do too.

    Thanks for this post and for letting me make such a long one myself!

    • Anne

      Pleasant— I am praying for you! It’s a tough road. (And I whole-heartily agree with your “double please.”) And I’m praying for someone nearby that can take ownership to helping in even one area: carpool, fun events for the kids, scheduled donuts (yum!), fixing things, lawn care, I’m hoping that will help you be the best care-giver by your husband’s side!

    • Shannon

      I am so sorry you are going through this. If you feel comfortable doing so comment with your city and state and I’m sure you’ll have offers of help from all the hip2savers here!

    I’m a mom of a special needs girl, I had knee surgery tear 2 weeks ago my friend came over with food for me and her and she helped me clean my house things that I couldn’t do , and my other 2 daughters came to bathed her , I was so grateful ! For the help ! When I had my masectomity and histerectomity 2 yrs ago surgery’s done the same day , I was miserable crying a lot had pain and to loose my breast couldn’t find bras, my mother in law came to visit , I wanted her gone and she wanted to have a conversation , I wanted to go to restroom so bad and I was laying in sofa only comfortable place ๐Ÿ˜ก By the time she finally left and I got up as difficult as it was I just pee on the floor , had to tell my husband not to let her come no more ! I’m grateful to be alive , but , I was miserable since couldn’t get hormones, hot flashes and the question why me? Thank you for the post ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

    Regarding the meals–we had a friend set up a meal train for us four years ago and while we were extremely grateful, I would like to offer the following suggestions for anyone volunteering to take a meal to someone: Please, please, please, for the love, bring them something other than Italian food. We were so sick of pasta and lasagna after just one week. Like I said, we didn’t want to seem ungrateful but we just couldn’t even eat lasagna after a while. Second: one of the best things someone did for us was bring us groceries. Third: meals other than dinner are awesome. And fourth: use disposable pans/trays. The last thing they need to do is worry about getting dishes back to people.

    • Danielle (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Great tips! Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wonderful post. Things/tasks that may seem so simple to some may mean the world to others. When my husband was hurt badly in a car accident, I stayed with him for two weeks in the hospital and a week in rehab. Our daughter was well taken care of by friends that had children her age and went to her school. It meant so much that she could stay on schedule and be around others her age to distract her during the time. When she needed to be alone, she would ask to go home for a few hours and she would do her laundry and deal with her emotions. After we got home, he was in a wheelchair and had friends bearing everything from food, gifts, pet care(we had chickens and rabbits at the time), and his hairstylist even made a house call. When going back and forth to the doctor two hours away, gas cards were very thoughtful since he didn’t go back to work for six months.

    Many years ago I was single & living by myself. I just moved to a new city far from family. I fell & broke my leg. A co-worker came & did my laundry every week until I was back on my feet. My washer & dryer was in my basement & I couldn’t get to it. One of the most thoughtful things someone has ever done for me.

    It says alot for a site and it’s community that people feel comfortable sharing personal details about their lives in addition to sharing great deals. My prayers go out to all who are going through hardships! I am reading these with tears in my eyes, love in my heart, and prayer on my lips!

      HBee, so true. That’s what I love about the Hip2Save community, and that’s what it is, a sweet community.

    Great post!!! I’ve also used your Cheryl’s cookie deals to send a little treat to a co worker who is in another state to let them know I’m thinking about them.
