With 1 hour each week (or every week), you can make a senior adult very happy by assisting them with their shopping. Many older adults who still live in their own homes are unable to get out to do their own shopping the way they used to. Your assistance, while simple, can truly make their day. Volunteers must complete an application with 3 references. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a consent form.
