Don't miss this great volunteer-starter opportunity. A local e ntrepreneur Needs Help with Shopping and Transporting Goods for Sale in their boutique at a local Danbury office building. This small business operator is legally blind and cannot drive, the high cost of driving services are driving profits through the exhaust pipe. If you are available to shop at a local big box store and assist in getting merchandise to Danbury you can make a tough day a little easier. If you have been thinking about volunteering and have been looking for something easy and that won't take a lot of time, this is a great starter opportunity of only about 90 minutes every 2 or three weeks!
