Local, flexible, impactful volunteering at its best! ElderNet of Lower Merion and Narberth is seeking local volunteers to be matched with an elderly or younger disabled adult who lives nearby, to either take them on bi-weekly shopping trips or to shop for them. The shopping trips can be scheduled during weekdays, early evenings, or on the weekends--whatever works for you! Time required is usually about an hour and half.
Most of the people our volunteers take shopping need and appreciate some help as they go through the aisles gathering items in their carts. All will need some help lifting the groceries into and out of your car, and getting the bags to their front door or kitchen.
This type of assistance is so appreciated by our clients! It can be instrumental in helping them to remain living independently in their own homes. Our volunteers frequently tell us how much they enjoy developing relationships with their shopping clients, and seeing the positive impact they can have on a neighbor in need. Call or email Brandon Trombetta at email@example.com, 610-525-0706 for an application or to ask any questions. We'd love to have you join our team of volunteers!
To help older and younger disabled adults who have low-moderate incomes remain living independently in their homes by providing free volunteer, social work, food and emergency help.
ElderNet provides volunteer-based services such as escort (door-through-door) driving to medical appointments, grocery stores, banks, pharmacies and other errands. We also provide friendly visits or calls, odd jobs and small home repairs, and help with managing checkbooks and bills. These volunteer services are free and are available to older and younger disabled adults living in Lower Merion Township or Narberth Borough in Montgomery County, PA. Income guidelines also apply for volunteer-based services. ElderNet also operates a food pantry and provides emergency financial assistance to qualifying Lower Merion Township residents (income and residency restrictions apply). Our information and referral services are open to anyone. We also have new and evolving services that further contribute to helping older and disabled younger adults remain living in their own homes. We collaborate with other agencies, and have a very active advocacy committee.
