Project Description
Many elderly people are homebound and unable to go to the grocery store. The American Red Cross Shopper Program volunteers get paired with a local client and grocery shop for them weekly to bi-weekly. Volunteers may also run other small errands for their client, such as going to the post office or bank. Our clients greatly appreciate the assistance they receive from our dedicated shopper volunteers! Clients provide detailed shopping lists and money for the groceries. *This opportunity is also available for various types of groups (youth groups, student groups, etc.). Groups get paired with one client, and then either shop as a group or split the shopping weeks up among various group members.
