Organization

Interfaith Volunteer Care Givers of Greater New Haven

Description

This is a low to no contact way of volunteering during this difficult time. We are looking for "personal shoppers" - these volunteers take a senior's shopping list, do her shopping, and return the groceries to her home. Either we pay or you pay and are immediately reimbursed via Venmo. We currently shop for about 10 clients weekly and this service keeps vulnerable folks out of the stores.

Mission Statement

Elderly persons who need help to continue living happily in their own homes have been served by the Interfaith Volunteer Care Givers of Greater New Haven program since 1984. The program brings people in need into supportive relationships with caring volunteers.
