General Agency Information
|Name:||Grocery Shopper Program|
|Alternate Name(s):||Volunteer Center Grocery Shopper Program|
|Description:||We are dedicated to ensuring that our most vulnerable community members are able to get the food they need as they shelter in place. We are serving low income seniors age 60+ and older adults with medical conditions.
Our volunteers are vetted and trained to take grocery orders and methods of payment from local seniors, purchase groceries from local retailers on behalf of the senior, and deliver the groceries to senior homes using social distancing practices.
|Volunteer Info:||Are you doing weekly shopping for your household? We invite you to help a senior at the same time by serving as a volunteer grocery shopper. We are recruiting healthy volunteers to shop for isolated seniors so they can remain safely at home. All volunteers will receive a safety training and will be background checked. Please Note: background checks can take up to 1 week to complete.
Please visit the website to learn more and express interest.
