Eastside Grocery Delivery Drivers Needed (age 18+) Referral

Do you enjoy making personal connections? Would you like to help homebound seniors maintain their independence? Become a weekly grocery Delivery Driver for Store to Door.

See us in action here!

What: You’ll pick up the already-shopped groceries on either Wednesday or Thursday between 10:30 and 12:30pm from the Hollywood Fred Meyer and deliver them to your clients using your own vehicle. We reimburse you .57 per mile. Deliveries take anywhere from 1-3 hours, depending on the number of clients you’d like to serve. You would be delivering to the same clients each week, so you'll have a chance to develop a relationship with your clients to help them avoid social isolation. All you need is a good driving record, a few hours each week and a commitment to make a difference.

Pick-up Location: Hollywood Fred Meyer (3030 NE Weidler St, Portland, OR 97232)

When: Every Wednesday and Thursday, 10:30 am - 2:00 pm

Family/Kid-friendly? No
