Grocery Shopping Assistance for Seniors

Cause Areas


It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


The Carter Burden Network is dedicated to supporting the efforts of older people to remain in their homes living independently, safely, and with dignity. Volunteers are an integral component of the Carter Burden Network's 40+ years of success. No matter your age, experience or schedule, CBN can accommodate your needs to ensure that you have a meaningful and effective volunteer experience.

We're looking for compassionate, patient, and committed individuals to help seniors grocery shop or do other errands. Volunteers assist seniors two or more times a month at the supermarket, or they may shop and deliver groceries to seniors who are homebound and living in the Upper East Side and East Harlem neighborhoods. This is a great way to get to know a senior and it also serves the crucial function of ensuring that seniors have food in their homes.

This is an on-going volunteer opportunity.
