Volunteer Driver-Grocery Delivery
LONGFELLOW-SEWARD HEALTHY SENIORS PROGRAM
During the COVID-19 crisis we are still offering grocery help, and rides to medical appointments in the community, but we are changing the way we do it. We are looking for volunteers who could help with groceries, but it would be pick up(either curbside, or in the store) and delivery only. We are still looking for drivers for the few medical appointments which are being scheduled, However, we have changed the protocol to include social distancing and additional safety measures - as well as providing personal protection equipment. By offering to drive at this time you would be helping a senior stay independent and reduce the stress that comes with not only isolation but concern over safely getting the food and supplies they need.

The mission of our community-based program is to help neighborhood seniors to maintain their independence and quality of life. This will be achieved through health promotional activities, community resources, volunteers and nursing services that help individuals live safely in their own homes.
We are a non-profit community-based organization serving older adults in the Longfellow and Seward neighborhoods of Minneapolis. Our purppose is to help seniors live independently at home with a high quality of life.
We are a member of the Living At Home Network, a group of programs throughout Minnesota that relies on "neighbors helping neighbors" to help seniors maintain their independence at home. We have a small staff so volunteers are an integral part of how we meet the needs of seniors in the neighborhoods we serve.
