The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
GROCERY/ERRAND SHOPPER VOLUNTEERS ARE ALWAYS IN DEMAND! We have a wait list of folks needing Shopping support!
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! As a Volunteer Shopper, you will provide a client transportation to grocery or other stores and help select items.
This is an easy way to make a big difference. Scheduling is flexible. Mileage reimbursement is available. We work with clients throughout the Twin Cities Metro area, so we'll work with you to find a client in your area. Time commitment is approximately 2-4 hours per month. You can volunteer with a friend or your group can "adopt" a client. Small groups of 2 or rotating members of a group would be a great fit for this opportunity, as well.
As a perk to our volunteers, we reimburse our volunteers a set amount per mile that you drive with our participants! Inquire for more details.
Volunteers must be over the age of 18 or accompanied by someone over the age of 18 and meet our insurance guidelines. Orientation, training, and on-going support are provided.
