Grocery Shop for Homebound Seniors – Hollywood Fred Meyer (all ages) *Hands On*

Hands On Managed projects offer you an opportunity to join a group of volunteers on a done-in-a-day project led by a Hands On Volunteer Leader

Do you like to grocery shop? Would you enjoy helping seniors and people with disabilities maintain their independence? Join us to grocery shop for those who are homebound. Think of it as a fun in-store scavenger hunt for a great cause!

What: Volunteer grocery shoppers receive a client’s grocery list and walk about the store finding each item. At times, the volunteer will need to call a client to ask clarifying questions about missing items or substitutions. Volunteer shoppers are not responsible for purchasing or delivering groceries, just shopping and having fun!

Where: Hollywood Fred Meyer (3030 NE Weidler St, Portland, OR 97232)

When: Every Wednesday and Thursday, 8:30 am – 11:00 am

Parking: Located in the Fred Meyer parking lot

Family/Kid-friendly? Yes!

Group Volunteering (i.e. Corporate, Church, School, etc)? Yes! If you are interested in bringing a group of volunteers, please contact Antonia at 503-200-3333 ext. 008 or email Antonia@StoretoDoorofOregon.org.
