During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
We have a wait list of people needing your help! Grocery/errand shopper volunteers are in demand.
Close your eyes. Imagine how you would shop for groceries or run errands if you lost your vision. You can help people who are blind or visually impaired maintain their independence. Become a Volunteer Shopper with Vision Loss Resources! As a Volunteer Shopper for a person with vision loss, you will provide transportation to the grocery store or other stores and help them select items.
This is an easy way to make a big difference. Scheduling is flexible. Mileage reimbursement is available. Clients live throughout the metro area, so we'll work with you to find a client near you. Time commitment is approximately 2-4 hours per month. You can volunteer with a friend, or members of your small group can volunteer in rotation.
We’ll provide the orientation, training, and ongoing support you need. As a perk, we reimburse our volunteers a set amount per mile that you drive with a client!
Volunteers must be over the age of 18 or accompanied by someone over the age of 18 and meet our insurance guidelines.
