Shoppers for Seniors

The Senior Connection’s Shoppers Program helps seniors who are unable to get their groceries into their homes on a regular basis. 

The program matches individuals 60 years and older -- with incomes of $30,450/year or less for singles and $34,800/yr for couples -- with a volunteer shopper. Seniors and shoppers are matched on a one-to-one basis and will shop either for or with a senior.

Volunteer shoppers are needed to escort a senior to the grocery store and assist with reading product labels, reaching stock, handling carts and once home, help put away groceries.  Volunteers may also shop for an individual from a prepared list and put groceries away upon returning.  Some may also provide companionship for seniors.  Commit to serving two to three hours a week for six to 12 months.

For more information about the Senior Connection’s Shoppers Program or to volunteer as a shopper, contact Program Director Greg Muncill at 301-942-1049 or email greg.muncill@seniorconnectionmc.org.
