Grocery Shop for Homebound Seniors in Hollywood or Beaverton (all ages) Referral

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.
 


Please read all of the following information carefully.

You cannot register through the Hands On website. To sign up for an upcoming Store to Door grocery shop project, visit
http://www.storetodooroforegon.volunteerhub.com (New login will be required).




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 around 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!
