Connect with Seniors by Calling for Grocery Orders (age 18+) Referral

Are you great on the phone? Do you enjoy making connections? Help homebound seniors and people with disabilities maintain their independence by becoming a weekly grocery order taker.



We're looking for caring, dedicated volunteers to call our clients each week for their grocery orders. Since most of our clients are homebound, this might be one of the few calls they get and they look forward to hearing from you.

Training is provided. Due to Covid 19 - all order taker shifts are remote.
The following shifts are available...

  • Monday 9am - 11am
  • Monday 1pm - 3pm
  • Tuesday 9am-11am
  • Tuesday 1pm-3pm
  • On-call Order Takers: Sometimes our regular order takers are unavailable due to vacations or illness, so we need to have a strong list of on-call order takers to make up the orders the regulars may be missing. This would need to be done remotely.


Volunteers for this position make a weekly commitment in order to provide consistency for our clients. We also ask that you are able to volunteer as a caller for at least 3 months.

Please note, this opportunity is not open to volunteers needing to accrue community service hours.

Store to Door is a local nonprofit that supports independent living for Portland area seniors and people with disabilities by providing an affordable, personal, volunteer-based grocery shopping and delivery service.

Without the dedicated support of volunteers like you, this service would not be available. Here's what clients have to say:

"Using Store to Door enables me to get fresh produce and to make better nutritional choices than if I went to the convenience store across the street." 

"Your help is priceless!"
