Bridge the Generation Gap! A shopping buddy is needed for a local resident. This octogenarian (85) walks with her older (89 year old) sister to the local CVS when they need incidentals and so the older sister can read the labels! Let's hope we have that kind of energy... She gardens and cooks too! She really needs a shopping buddy. Some help with reading and sorting the mail, and filling out forms at the doctor's office would also be very helpful. Just an hour or two per week would go a long way for this great lady who spent her working career caring for disabled children. Can you return the gift!
