A local lady who is legally blind and living in a care facility needs a buddy to take the Red Cross bus to the local department store for shopping trips. The bus usually leaves Portland around 1:30 and returns around 3 p.m. She needs a little help in the store to get her shopping done, watch the clock and help her back out to the van. This person uses a wheel chair that is hydraulicly lifted into/out of the van - easy no lifting needed. Just watch the clock, get the items on her list and head on home! Just ninety minutes a week or every other week and it will mean a LOT to this lady who has no local family.
