Fabiana LaBauve and Leela Newman joined Store to Door on April 5th to grocery shop for 90+ homebound seniors and people with disabilities and provide them with the groceries, prescription medications, and household items they need.
Grocery shopping is a familiar errand for most people, but many Portland residents are too frail to shop for themselves and rely on Store to Door to provide them with their weekly groceries. Besides providing direct service, Store to Door volunteers interact personally with clients. The agency is in the unique position of having weekly phone contact and visits to the homes of people who often live isolated lives, providing them with much-needed service and support.[By Leela Newman]
