COVID-19 Help Needed: Grocery Shop for Visually Impaired Neighbor near Weymouth MA
Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired
The Mass Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired seeks volunteers to be matched 1:1 with a participant who is blind or visually impaired. Do you enjoy grocery shopping? Does it warm your heart to know that someone has the food they need? There is currently an immediate need for a volunteer to help a woman in Quincy MA shop for her groceries once every other week. Volunteers need to have a car, and be willing to go to the store with her and help her shop. Volunteers must be kind and compassionate, reliable and friendly. If you want to make a difference in the life of a neighbor, then this is an easy, flexible way to do so!
