Seeking volunteers to drive clients living in Grafton, Massachusetts to and from a nearby store of their choice. Once at the store the volunteer would aid the client in locating sections of the store. Also aid the client in product selection, reading labels and prices of products. The volunteer would also assist with the store check out process and with bringing purchases from the car into the client's residence.

The volunteer would work with the client to select a time to shop that is convenient for both the volunteer and the client. Usually, the time required to shop could vary from 2 to 4 hours. Often the client is seeking a volunteer to shop with them once or twice a month.
